Metal production methods have improved greatly over the years and even the more traditional processes have been fine tuned to offer a much higher quality output. Hydroforming is not a new procedure but is one that has not only stood the test of time but has also been improved by it as well. The production entailed is much as the name suggests and involves an oil based liquid which is used to form and create shapes of varying degrees of complexity. The entire hydroform production is an extremely cost effective process that is suitable for use with many different metals such as aluminium, stainless steel, brass and copper.
Hydroforming can greatly reduce development costs and overheads by replacing other multiple processes all at once. With its ability to easily form and create a multitude of shapes and designs, it is ideal for small custom runs where a minimum of items are required. It also offers many advantages over alternative methods such as stamping, which is liable to result in a harsher final product without a smooth finish. Stamping is also likely to cause marking on the metal, something that the hydroform process ensures doesn’t happen.
Whether hydroforming is right for you and your business comes down to the specific requirements of the job. It is not ideally designed for much longer production runs but is perfect for small ones. It offers a flexible solution for more challenging shapes and with its fast turnaround, is the ideal choice for many projects.
