With 3,000 bar to revolutionary shapes
In hydroforming, hollow bodies are pressed from inside into a mold by means of high pressure of up to 3,000 bar. With this process, which is still innovative even after 30 years and whose limits have been approached but not yet reached, multistage mechanical forming steps can be efficiently combined.
Hydroforming has revolutionized the possibilities of tube forming with a new processing principle. A hitherto unknown variety of shapes became possible.
At the same time, choice with regard to design and materials is very free. Stainless steel, steel, aluminum or non-ferrous metals can all be used. These can be processed into exact dimensions and shapes – repeatability is also very pronounced in hydroforming. Hydroformed components thus offer the optimum combination of space efficiency, freedom of design and weight savings in combination with maximum strength and precision.
