American Hydroformers: Metal Stamping and Hydroforming
The majority of manufacturers will consider metal stamping, hydroforming, and other methods to be processes that are specialized and closely-focused. However, hydroforming and other metal-forming methods are used in a variety of industries. These methods are known to be used in the following industries:
Manufacturers use metal spinning, hydroforming, and metal stamping methods to create products we are familiar with on a daily basis to products we may not be familiar with. Gaining a clear understanding of the advantages and benefits of the different processes and where the processes intersect will help you determine which metal-forming method will bring you better results.
The metal stamping process uses dies to create a variety of shapes from flat metal sheets. Since metal stamping does not require you to use multiple machines, the overall production cost will be more affordable. Any part that is created through the metal stamping process can appear in various industries.
When the hydroforming method is used, the process will involve oil pressure. The oil pressure will be used to create various metals, such as steel and aluminum. After the products are created, the smoothly bonded products will have a high stiffness-to-weight ratio.
The high ratio is needed in order for the products to meet the right amount of tightness. Like the stamping process, the hydroforming process is used to create a variety of products that we use on a regular basis.
Metal stamping and hydroforming have their own benefits and can be used to create useful and essential products. It is important to use the technique that offers the best chance to create efficient and effective products in your industry.
