Hydroforming

The hydroforming process, a tube bending technology, utilizing phased pressure fluid in an enclosed cavity, allows F&P to produce subframe components with more part shape flexibility. Hole piercing within the tube, occurs concurrently. CNC benders prepare the tube for hydroforming &/or laser cutting.

Advantages offered by the hydroforming process include:

  • Reduced tooling
  • Improved dimensional accuracy
  • Reduced weight
  • Increased strength & stiffness

For our link arm production, our 4 CNC machines cut long tube into small lengths, machining the ends using milling, facing, chamfering & reaming.
