Metal Stamping or Hydroforming: That Is The Question

Since 2003, American Hydroformers has set high standards in the hydroforming industry and has continued to work hard to stay at the top of the manufacturing industry. American Hydroformers continue to invest in the equipment and technologies that we know our customers will appreciate. One of our goals is to provide high-quality products at a price our customers they can afford, and this is one of the reasons why we offer more than one way of forming materials.

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.

The Curious Case of the Tesla Model 3

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. 

Where Would We Be Without High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming?

Where Would We Be Without High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming?

Although your average American probably has not heard of high metal gas forming, that does not mean they have not taken advantage of products made possible (or made better) through it. Those of us in the industry know better. We recognize that the vast majority of us would lead less comfortable and convenient lives without high-temperature metal gas forming.

What is Tube Hydroforming: an Explanation of an Important Procedure

Overview of Tube Hydroforming

Tube hydroforming is one of two groups within the broader category of hydroforming itself, along with sheet hydroforming. It is a relatively new manufacturing process, but it has led to very impressive results. The process involves expanding metal tubes into a different form through the use of a pair of die halves. The die halves support the raw tube. The cross-sectional tube structure is altered as a result of the internal pressure involved.
