For years, American Hydroformers has been using tubular hydroforming in the automotive industry, appliance industry, and other industries to convert multi-part assemblies into hydroformed parts that are light and durable. Our ability to use hydroforming effectively allows us to create simple and complex parts that we would not be able to create using conventional or traditional forming methods.
The hydroforming process has a high strength-to-weight ratio. What does this mean? This means that through the hydroforming process, greater stability can be created without the need to use multiple operations. When the hydroforming process is used, more flexible design options will be used. Using tubular hydroforming to create parts from extrusions has become popular because there are greater efforts to lower the structural weights of parts and components.
Manufacturers in the automotive, appliance industry, and others are using the benefits of tubular hydroforming to create more durable and stronger cars and appliances. While manufacturers in various industries continue to innovate by using tubular hydroforming, there are various benefits that will come with the process.
Benefits of Tubular Hydroforming
- the various opportunities to reduce the weights of the parts and components
- high-quality bending strength
- tubing capabilities
- flexible design options
There are certainly several advantages to using hydroforming to make tubular parts. Hydroforming is no longer a new technology, but it is one that is still being explored by more industries. Every material that can be used in tubular hydroforming will have its own features that you will need to take into account.
Whatever reason you plan to use the hydroforming process, we encourage you to choose a company that will be familiar with the ins and outs of the process. You will also want to use a company that knows how to apply the process to create different applications, parts, components, etc. It does not matter what your industry may be, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your needs.
