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

What is Tube Hydroforming? The History and Background Explained

First developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s, tube hydroforming is the process by which pressurized fluid, either hydraulic fluid or water, is used to expand and shape metal tubes into the contours of a die. Since there are no welded seams, tubular hydroforming can be

Friction Stir Welding: Its Applications and Advantages for the Automotive Industry

Friction stir welding (FSW) is a relatively new welding process that was invented at The Welding Institute in Cambridge, UK in 1991. FSW is a solid-state joining process that uses frictional heat combined with accurately directed forging pressure to produce high integrity welded joints for extruded or
