Alternatives to Metal Forming: FluidForming Technology
FluidForming is an industry-changing technology and process that was established in response to the limitations of conventional metal forming technologies. Our technology makes it possible for designers, engineers, and manufactures to create innovative products that would otherwise be too costly, difficult, or time-consuming to manufacture.
Enabling the Future
The FluidForming technology is made possible by our compact, computer controlled, and networked metal forming FormBalancer machine. Furthermore, our universal sheet metal and tube forming machine eliminates the need for individual sheet metal forming and tube forming equipment.
The design of the FormBalancer incorporates a floating tool structure, or a “pressure pillow,” for the upper and lower die mounting fixtures. This innovative design allows for plane-parallel self-alignment of tools while simultaneously providing excellent, level seal surfaces with evenly distributed sealing forces.
