FluidForming: Paving the Way for Technology and Innovation
Simply put, the remarkable FluidForming process has the potential to unlock the future. In the highly competitive and innovation-driven technology sector, we offer industry-leading companies a distinct market advantage. We’ll help you get your products on the market faster and more affordably.
What is FluidForming? It’s a pioneering approach to traditional hydroforming that enables rapid prototyping and same-day production of custom or limited-run designs. The implications of FluidForming are wide-ranging and profound. Ideas that were once deemed too costly to produce can be formed, iterated, and perfected in a matter of days.
FluidForming’s universal sheet metal and tube forming machine, the FormBalancer, is a force-contained structure that permits extremely high forming pressures of up to 4,000 bar/60,000 psi. With up to 4x the pressure used by traditional hydroforming equipment, FluidForming makes it possible to form components that were previously thought too complex to be formed from metal. Not only that, but our process features a greater strength-to-weight ratio than virtually any other metal forming process.
Our technology offers unparalleled flexibility for inventors and engineers. Although we have formed computer monitor enclosures, computer cases, battery enclosures, fuel cells, microchannel fuel cells, heat exchangers, and state-of-the-art medical equipment, our true strength lies in what’s yet to be created. Come to us with your ideas and we’ll turn them into reality.
Advantages of FluidForming
All-in-One Metal Forming Technology: Benefits of FluidForming for the Technology Industry
FluidForming’s innovative approach to hydroforming offers a number of potential benefits for the technology sector.
Dramatically truncate the time between ideation and full-scale production with FluidForming. Not only does our process save our clients many hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of a product launch, but our clients are able to bring innovative products to the market well ahead of their competitors.
Furthermore, unlike bladder-based systems, our bladder-free technology ensures the highest levels of surface quality and detail possible. Because pressurized water comes in contact with just one side of the metal surface, FluidForming is perfect for pre-finished materials or high-tech alloys. Trademarks, brands, and logos can all be easily incorporated into the design of each part. Components produced using the FluidForming technology are lightweight, stable, and durable. Thanks to high forming pressures, advanced geometries and complex shapes can be readily achieved.
