Finite Element Analysis: On Your Radar for 2019?

Finite Element Analysis: On Your Radar for 2019?

Is Finite Element Analysis on your radar for projects you plan to develop during 2019? If not, it should be.

What It Is Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an engineering technique used to obtain “approximate solutions of boundary value problems.” By running the specs of your prototype through FEA software, technicians are able to determine strengths, weaknesses, and potential refinements. 

Three Products Improved with Hydroformed Aluminum

Three Products Improved with Hydroformed Aluminum

Though carbon steel and stainless steel are two major contenders that benefit from hydroforming, they are not alone. Applications for aluminum hydroforming are on the rise. Today we will highlight three products significantly improved with hydroformed aluminum parts.

3 Myths About Deep Draw Metal Stamping

3 Myths About Deep Draw Metal Stamping

Over the course of many years, there have been numerous misconceptions about deep draw metal stamping and how the deep draw process works. For those who are unfamiliar with the deep draw metal stamping process, this is a manufacturing process that remains in competition with others in order to create a product that has a few similarities or one that is completely the same. However, the deep draw metal stamping process has a few major differences that separate it from the other methods and processes. 

Metal Stamping Market Set to Boom

Metal Stamping Market Set to Boom

According to recent reports, the metal stamping market is poised to continue expanding throughout the next decade. Experts are predicting a stable rise of 4.92% over the next few years, with the trend continuing in the years to follow.

That’s good news, and not just for those of us here in the United States.

From 2018 to 2026, the industry will continue its global expansion.

What Is Friction Stir Welding? American Hydroformers

What Is Friction Stir Welding? American Hydroformers

The welding technique, friction stir welding, was developed almost 30 years ago in 1991. Although it was invented many years ago, it has seen a high rise in demand over the past few years. One of the main reasons that friction stir welding has seen such a massive increase is due to the rising demand for greater strength and durability in applications.

Why Choose American Hydroformers? 3 Good Reasons

Why Choose American Hydroformers? 3 Good Reasons

When it comes to hydroforming services, you have a few options. Just because you have options, though, does not mean that they are all equally good or good for you. We would like to offer three good reasons why you should choose us.

Friction Stir Welding: What is it and How Does it Work?

Friction Stir Welding: What is it and How Does it Work?

Lauded as the most significant innovation in metal joining in the last decade, Friction Stir Welding (FSW) introduces a solid-state joining process that is environmentally friendly, versatile, and energy efficient. FSW outperforms conventional fusion welding by joining aerospace aluminum alloys, and other metallic alloys, that are high-strength. The significance of this advancement is that aerospace aluminum alloys, like 2XXX and 7XXX series, have been classified as virtually non-weldable with conventional welding processes because of porosity and microstructure solidification behavior. Resistance welding can be performed on aluminum alloys, however, surface preparation has to be performed, which is expensive and surface oxide becomes a problem.

Automotive Industry: What Is Tube Hydroforming?

Automotive Industry: What Is Tube Hydroforming?

When the right circumstances present themselves, hydroforming can be a cost-effective and reliable resource in your manufacturing process. Tube hydroforming will generally produce structural components that will be more reliable and stronger than they would be if you used one of the conventional methods.
