FluidForming Americas: Hydroforming Reinvented
A revolutionary approach to metal forming
Better. Faster. Smarter.
FluidForming is a new, highly-reliable precision hydroforming process. Bring better products to market faster with FluidForming Americas.
FormBalancers — our bladder-free, 4-in-1 metal forming presses — use water as the forming force. With forming pressures up to 4,000 bar / 60,000 psi, FluidForming is the only Six Sigma metal forming and tube forming process designed for prototyping and low- to medium-volume parts production.
Benefits of FluidForming: We’re Hydroforming for the 21st Century
Accuracy & Repeatability
FluidForming’s Sig Sigma 99.996% first pass yield rate is the highest in the sheet metal forming and hydroforming industry.
Low Tooling Costs
Our process uses a single die from prototyping through production. Nested and 3D-printed tooling can cut tooling costs up to 90%.
Complex Part Formation
Thanks to the highest forming pressure in the industry, our bladder-free technology produces complex parts with tight tolerances.
Enjoy faster lead times with flexible tooling options and quick tool setup and cycle times. Move from design to production in days.
FluidForming manufactures parts that are free from scratches and galling. You can even use prefinished and textured materials!
Accelerate time-to-market, shorten product development cycles, lower tooling costs, and minimize scrap and secondary operations.

FluidForming FormBalancers: 4-in-1 Sheet Metal Presses
Enjoy unparalleled metal forming capabilities with our universal sheet metal and tube forming presses. FluidForming’s FormBalancers are compact, force-contained, computer-controlled, semi-automated, and network-connected metal forming presses.
Because of the FormBalancer’s lightweight and compact design, special foundational requirements are unnecessary and it allows for flexible floor placement.
FormBalancer sheet metal presses form rectangular and circular parts and can easily be converted to perform tube forming functions. Table sizes range from 800 mm to 2,000 mm and forming depth ranges from 300 mm to 560 mm.
We’ll work with you to manufacture highly precise components to desired specifications. FormBalancers are also available for lease or purchase. FluidForming Americas, Inc. is a member of the Precision Metal Forming Association and is AS9100 Rev D, ISO 9001:2015 certified.
