Hydroforming uses high-pressure hydraulic fluid to press room temperature metal into a die. The process is utilized to make complex shapes with concavities. Hydroforming is used for parts requiring a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio. A cost-effective process, the advantages of hydroforming include tighter tolerances and ease of finish while maintaining material thickness.
Material Thicknesses and Diameters
Wondering about the maximum diameter of parts we can make? How deep we can go? And what materials we use? Our Hydroform is rated at 15,000 psi and takes blanks to 15” diameter with a 10” maximum punch and 9” depth. We work with aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel and more.
