The Hydro-Forming Process
Hydro-Forming is a metal fabricating and forming process developed to provide a cost effective means to produce irregular contours that do not lend themselves well to stamping. This can be a single stage, or a multi stage process saving labor, tools, and materials. Sheet Hydro-Forming uses a form die and a sheet of metal. The blank sheet is driven into the die forming the desired shape. Virtually all metals capable of cold forming can be hydro-Formed. The process is very cost effective when it comes too small and medium quantity requirements along with complex shapes.
