Hydroforming presses use hydraulic fluid to exert pressure to form parts. It is a versatile method that is capable of making complicated geometrics. Hydroforming presses are capable of creating both sheet and tubular-based parts. These kinds of presses are commonly used in the aerospace and automotive industries. This is because they are able to make complex parts without compromising their strength. Here at Sanson Machinery Group, we offer both fluid cell and deep draw configurations for your hydroforming press needs.
When using a fluid cell press, the sheet material is placed on top of a stationary form block. The diaphragm becomes pressurized with hydraulic fluid, which causes it to expand. This allows the diaphragm to exert equal pressure on every point of the material. It is capable of producing multiple parts simultaneously. A fluid cell press results in reduced material wrinkling and often prevents the need for manual finishing.
A deep draw press uses a pressurized diaphragm to form complex geometries. The diaphragm draws the material in, which allows for an exceedingly controlled flow. This method is ideal for creating barrels or other round shapes.
Hydroforming presses are a very cost-effective way of producing parts. They can be used for many different purposes. They also greatly increase production efficiency. A hydroforming press can produce specialized work, which results in less reliance on specialized workers.
