Pressure and Tube Hydroforming: American Hydroformers

Tube hydroforming is accomplished in one of two ways, either high pressure or low pressure. The desired shape and strength of the metal tube determine the level of pressure that will be used. High Pressure Tube Hydroforming High-pressure tube hydroforming is often referred to as internal high-pressure

Friction Stir Welding: What is it and How Does it Work?

Lauded as the most significant innovation in metal joining in the last decade, Friction Stir Welding (FSW) introduces a solid-state joining process that is environmentally friendly, versatile, and energy efficient. FSW outperforms conventional fusion welding by joining aerospace aluminum alloys, and other metallic alloys, that are high-strength.
