Metal Forming Industry Trends According to the Gospel of FluidForming
High-tech Metals and Metal Alloys Are All the Rage
The use of advanced materials and alloys like high-strength steel, aluminum, and composites in metal forming processes for industries like the aerospace and aviation industry and automotive industry (and custom car builders) is continuing to grow. These materials often offer improved performance and reduced weight.
Automation is Transforming the Metal Forming Industry
Automation and smart manufacturing technologies could continue to play a significant role in the metal forming industry. This includes the use of robotic sleds, AI, and Finite Element Analysis to improve production efficiency and quality control.
Sustainability is a Growing Concern in Many Industries.
Metal forming companies like FluidForming Americas focus on reducing waste, lowering energy consumption, and reducing emissions. We also believe mightily in doing things right the first time you form. Check out this roundup of sustainability posts.
Customization and Prototyping is the Big Thang in the Metal Forming Industry
The demand for customized products and rapid prototyping is increasing. We're leaders in cost-effective rapid prototyping. Whether you need one part 100,000+, FluidForming Americas can do it!
Additive Manufacturing to Lower Die Costs
You wouldn’t think we’d be touting the benefits of 3D printing, but we do! While not traditional metal forming, additive manufacturing (3D printing) can dramatically lower tooling costs.
