The FormBalancer is a hydroforming machine that shapes metal sheets into a tool form by applying very high pressures. Pressures up to 4000 bars acting on the formed part have to be produced by high tool closing forces without generating leaks or bending the tool. This task is accomplished by a patented closing system, the design of which differs substantially from conventional press technology. The advantage lies in a compact design, leading to considerably reduced investment requirements. This design enables system installation at ground level; hence the installation costs are reduced substantially and a high flexibility is ensured.
Almost any industry can benefit from the advantages of the hydroforming process. Again and again companies are faced with the challenge of simultaneously achieving both lower operating costs and innovative solutions for evolutionary advances of their products. Our high-pressure forming technology offers attractive possibilities in terms of price-performance ratio and manufacturing time.
