Hydroforming is the process that involves shaping various metal parts into pieces that are sturdy and light in weight. While this is a very quick and affordable process, it is also very efficient and effective. We know that when you produce parts of any size, you will have a variety of requirements that you will need to meet. One of those requirements that you will need to be met is tight tolerance. 

What is Passive Versus Active Hydroforming?

What is Passive Versus Active Hydroforming?

Hydroforming is the process of using pressure on sheets of metal to create shapes, many that are used in building automobiles. For example, if you look at the metal cradle holding the engine in an automobile, you are looking at something formed through tube hydroforming. If you look at the side of your automobile, it was probably formed through hydroforming used on a sheet of metal. While called by different names, there are two types of sheet hydroforming: Active and passive.
