Durable Agricultural Hydroforming
FluidForming is a highly durable, faster approach to sheet metal forming. Agricultural industries, commercial farmers, and farming equipment manufacturers rely on FluidForming to produce implements and parts that can withstand heavy use and frequent strain. We produce parts for a variety of applications including crop farming, livestock farming, greenhouses, and more.
Because every aspect of the metal forming process — blank design to material flow to clamping pressure and volume of water — is variable and controlled, parts formed with FluidForming technology are of the highest possible quality.
Our modern approach to hydroforming means that we can work with our agricultural clients to design specialty parts and to form a wide variety of farming and agricultural equipment. Some of the agricultural components we form include feeding troughs, storage containers, differential housings, fenders, and body panels for farming equipment.
Benefits of FluidForming for Agribusiness and the Agricultural Industry
FluidForming’s innovative approach to hydroforming delivers significant benefits to the Agricultural industry.
Excellent In-Field Life Expectancy
Agricultural equipment and replacement components made with high-quality FluidForming parts last longer. Thanks to the FluidForming technology and metal forming process, parts that were once formed from fragile plastics can now be formed from metal. Not only that, but thanks to our rapid prototyping capabilities, low tooling costs, and accelerated production schedules overall production costs are dramatically reduced.
Lightweight and Durable Components
The FormBalancer produces durable, highly complex parts and tubular shapes made from lighter metals and alloys which can reduce the overall weight of your heavy farm equipment without impacting its lifespan. Lighter parts improve equipment speed, allowing farmers to cover more land while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption.
Improved Corrosion Resistance
Thanks to prolonged exposure to the elements, farming equipment is particularly susceptible to rust and corrosion. Because of the high forming pressures that the FluidForming technology employs, it’s perfect for forming parts made from rust- and corrosion-resistant metals and alloys such as titanium, aluminum, copper, and stainless steel.
Advantages of Fluid Forming
Agricultural Hydroforming With Specialty Metals and Materials
Again, thanks to our high forming pressures, the FluidForming technology and process is perfect for titanium, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, nickel alloy, and other modern high-tech alloys. Some components that are commonly hydroformed formed for the agricultural industry include:
- Replacement parts
- Undercarriage parts
- Farming implements and equipment
- Milking machine components
- Greenhouse tubing
FluidForming Americas, Inc. is ISO-certified. We are committed to the formation of high-quality, reliable parts for agribusiness and the agricultural industry.
