Need a new metal forming machine? FluidForming Americas can help!
You may be looking for a FormBalancer metal forming machine by FluidForming Americas. The FormBalancer is a FluidForming machine (which is a modern reinvention of hydroforming) and it's the most accurate metal press on the market. Plus, its the only 4-in-1 sheet metal and tube forming machine in the world.
No other metal forming machine offers manufacturers this level of flexibility. In addition to its unrivaled versatility, the FormBalancer is the most reliably precise metal forming machine available, making it the best option for industries where precision, accuracy, and the highest levels of quality matter.
FluidForming Americas' production-ready presses are engineered for low- to medium-volume metal forming and rapid prototyping. The machines can produce rectangular and circular parts and can accommodate complex shapes with a 99.996% first-pass yield rate. Thanks to nesting tooling capabilities, FormBalancer metal forming presses can produce up to 10 parts per minute. And a quick and easy adaptation transforms the FormBalancer from a deep draw sheet metal forming press to a high-pressure tube forming machine.
Highest metal forming pressures available
FormBalancers are patented, force-contained metal forming presses that achieve extremely high forming pressures of up to 4,000 bar / 60,000 psi.
That's up to 4x the forming pressure used by traditional, bladder-based hydroforming machines or existing deep draw presses. Uniform absorption of closing forces ensures highly precise and repeatable part formation.
