FluidForming Americas Product Development and Optimization Services

FluidForming is the most precise and repeatable sheet metal hydroforming process available to manufacturers and product developers. FluidForming sheet metal hydroforming is ideal for rapid prototyping and low- to medium-volume production runs.

The engineering team at FluidForming Americas helps manufacturers gain a competitive advantage by helping them bring better products to market, faster. Our continuous improvement model enhances existing products, and it also works great for product development and optimization.

What is FluidForming Sheet Metal Hydroforming?

✔ Bladder-free hydroforming

✔ 99.996% accuracy & repeatability

✔ Sustainable

✔ Industry-leading forming pressures up to 60,000 psi.

✔ Form complex parts with unusual geometries.

✔ Rapid prototyping

✔ Lower tooling & post-production costs

How FluidForming Americas Works With Customers to Improve Product Development

We start with a customer’s 3D CAD drawing and have a discussion with them to learn more about what they hope to achieve with the part.

Then, we run the part through our forming simulation program to help them refine and optimize the part. This helps us identify and address potential issues before having a tool made or forming a single part … saving our customers time and money.

Our Product Development Process

Step 1: Value Engineering

→ 1-3 Weeks

Step 2: Tooling

→ 4-8 Weeks

Step 3: Set-up & Part Approvals

→ 2-3 Weeks

Step 4: Production

→ 1-3 Weeks

Improve Product Development: Benefits of Collaborating With the FluidForming Americas Engineering Team

Our team of seasoned engineers is committed to helping our customers develop the strongest, most effective and efficient parts possible. We add value to the product development process by:

  • Ensuring manufacturability.
  • Avoiding errors and mistakes while identifying opportunities for product improvement.
  • Optimizing part design to minimize material thinning.
  • Identifying areas of stress and avoiding them.
  • Offering recommendations for material type and thickness.
  • Enabling rapid prototyping.
  • Reducing time to market (also lowers costs).
  • Helping you gain a competitive advantage by getting your products to market faster.
  • Reducing fit-up, welding, and other post-secondary costs.

Environmentally Friendly Sheet Metal Hydroforming

FluidForming is an environmentally friendly metal forming solution for precision-driven industries and manufacturers. There’s no other process that can go from two-thousandths of an inch titanium for fuel cells up to a quarter of an inch stainless steel for structural parts.

Bring us your toughest challenges and we’ll work with you to find a solution. The engineering team at FluidForming Americas is ready to help your company manufacture highly repeatable and durable parts.
