Expect More From Sheet Metal Hydroforming With FluidForming Americas

We’ve been hearing from our existing sheet metal hydroforming customers that they appreciate the level of service our team of metal forming experts and engineers have to offer. We’re leaders in the metal forming industry – and we do sheet metal hydroforming, but we do it differently! FluidForming Americas forms precision metal parts that work the first time. And the next time. And we do it on time. Every time.

There’s no great mystery to how we form metal parts that fit: it all comes down to physics. The fundamental physics of the FluidForming sheet metal hydroforming process differ significantly from conventional bladder-based hydroforming, metal spinning, or die stamping.

We Work Under (A LOT of) Pressure

With forming pressures of up to 60,000 psi (4,000 bar) FluidForming metal forming produces highly detailed parts with complex geometries. Thanks to the process’s high metal forming pressures – which are significantly higher than conventional hydroforming – FluidForming is capable of forming durable metal parts with a 99.996% first pass yield rate.

Our Bubbles Won’t Burst

Plus, FluidForming’s bladder-free technology simultaneously reduces maintenance costs and improves part precision and finish quality. Because the FluidForming process doesn’t require a bladder — unlike legacy hydroforming methods — the level of detail achieved by the process is unparalleled.

And, because only one side of the metal part comes in contact with the forming force – which is water – FluidForming produces beautiful unblemished parts.

Measure Twice, Form It Right

FluidForming Americas also offers finite element analysis (FEA) —  which enables us to help customers like you make sure your product designs will work before a single piece is formed. FEA can also help manufacturers select the optimal material, find the perfect material thickness, and resolve any potential formability concerns before incurring forming costs.
