Tube and sheet hydroformed steel components for autobody application
In view of the weight reduction strategies required and increasingly implemented by the automobile industry, growing importance is being attached not only to the materials but also the forming methods used. Forming processes using hydraulic media in particular offer the potential to produce more complex parts economically while optimizing component properties. The tube hydroforming (IHU) and hydromechanical sheet forming (AHU) processes are ideally suited for the production of automotive components in line with these requirements.
