New Discovery, Implications for High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming

New Discovery, Implications for High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming

From time to time, new discoveries change the way we approach various aspects of industry and technology. Recently, the discovery of a new metal has us doing exactly that. 

Getting The Perfect Finish With Hydroforming

Getting The Perfect Finish With Hydroforming

When you are thinking about the multiple options that are available for working with any type of metal, many companies in the industry have chosen to use a process known as hydroforming. The manufacturing process was developed in the late 1940s and the early 1950s, and it continues to be an ideal option for adding shapes to a variety of ductile metals. 

What Is Hydroforming: Benefits of Hydroforming

What Is Hydroforming: Benefits of Hydroforming

The hydroforming process has been used for quite some time in the manufacturing industry. The hydroforming process involves the use of stainless steel, aluminum, and other ductile metals. These ductile metals are eventually transformed into complex shapes through the use of pressure and fluid.

The process of using pressure and fluid over one sheet of metal results in a variety of benefits. Some of the great benefits of hydroforming include the following:

What Should You Know About Deep Draw Hydroforming?

What Should You Know About Deep Draw Hydroforming?

Deep draw hydroforming is constantly in competition with other types of hydroforming processes that are able to create the same products or similar products. However, deep draw hydroforming has multiple differences that set it apart from the other processes.

We understand the choices are not always easy to make, but there are many hydrofroming professionals and experts are available to provide information for anyone who has been thinking about the deep draw hydroforming method. With so much information being shared, there is always a chance that false information will be shared. 

Tube Hydroforming: A Short History

Tube Hydroforming: A Short History

Tube hydroforming: a short history. In many ways, the past holds the keys to the present. If those who have gone before us had not accomplished great things, we would not be where we are today. That’s true in many aspects of life and industry; it’s also true in the world of hydroforming.

To that end, in order to appreciate where we are regarding the advancement of tube hydroforming, we must first discuss a brief history.

The Curious Case of the Tesla Model 3

Tesla cars have been around for a while now, and successive models have been called everything from an “all-electric dream car” to an “eco-friendly gift to the motoring masses.” Of course, press for Tesla hasn’t been exclusively glowing: there have also been reports of car fires, which technically are a type of “glowing” report, but not the type anyone would want.

Leveraging FEA for Pre-Production Needs

Leveraging FEA for Pre-Production Needs

In some situations, speed is of the essence. Think of self-styled “fast food” or “quick service” dining establishments. If such restaurants are unable to provide quality food quickly enough, their clientele may question the business model.

In many situations, however, the speed at which a good or service can be provided is less important than the quality. Although timing clearly does matter, speed doesn’t trump effectiveness. This is especially important to remember during pre-production.

Hydroforming is a fabrication method that is regularly used in the transportation and automotive industries. Hydroforming is used so often because it allows even the most complex shapes to be created without the need to weld parts. Many automakers have relied on a traditional stamping method and a traditional welding method to fabricate components.
