HydroForm TUBE Technology


Hydroforming is the most innovative and accurate tube shaping method. It is a cost-effective way to produce one-piece structures, and tube designs with a higher strength/stiffness-to-weight ratio. As oppose to mechanical forming or die stamping, hydroform machines use hydraulic-pressure fluid to expand and shape a tube within enclosed dies. These die halves have a negative mold to resemble the tube's final shape or features. This technique enables tube designs to have seamless concavities and complex contours -and reach shape tolerances of +/-0.5mm. Popular applications of hydroform tubing include bicycles frames and motor vehicle chassis.
