Hydroforming and the Midwest: Busting Some Myths


Hydroforming and Midwest–both of these terms have seen their share of disinformation. Fortunately, we’re here today on a mythbusting mission, set on clearing the air and setting the record straight.

The Midwest

In his fun and wholesome stand-up comedy routine Happy Face, Idaho native Ryan Hamilton makes fun of New Yorkers’ perceptions of what “the Midwest” actually is, hinting that for many people, anything between New York City and Los Angeles counts.

In reality, of course, the area known as the Midwest is quite a bit smaller and more specific.

It is generally considered to include Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. The area is known for its rich farmlands and highly industrialized centers. (Free Dictionary)

As host to many of America’s most important centers of industry, the Midwest plays a pivotal role in keeping the nation running. This is especially true when it comes to hydroforming.



Although many average American citizens give little thought to the hydroforming industry, that doesn’t mean they don’t benefit from it on a daily basis. Just as people tend to overestimate the size of the Midwest, they tend to underestimate the important role hydroforming plays in their daily lives. Everything from the cars we drive, the bikes we ride, the musical instruments we play (or listen to others playing), and the medical equipment in our hospitals are composed of or enhanced by hydroformed parts.
