Hydroforming is one of the fabrication methods that is often used in the auto industry. Hydroforming gives those in the automotive industry to create complex shapes that can be made without having to go through the process of welding the different parts together.
Many automakers rely on the traditional methods of stamping and welding the automotive components. When the stamping and welding methods are used, you will have to stamp out the parts and weld them together in order to make the automotive parts.
On the other hand, when the hydroformed method is used, pressure will be used to force pieces of metal into a die shape. Hydroforming is more productive and more efficient than the stamp and weld method.
Each year, more and more vehicles are being created with hydroformed components. Tubular hydroforming is one of the most-used manufacturing methods for creating automobile parts.
Tubular hydroforming allows you to create an effective strength-to-weight ratio, great durability, great strength, flexibility, etc. All of these benefits of hydroformed components have resulted in many automotive manufacturers to switch to hydroforming for creating different automobile parts.
There are various automobiles that were created with hydroformed parts, including the following:
- Chevy Silverado
- Ford Fusion
- Jeep Grand Cherokee
- Jeep Wrangler
