Austenitic stainless steels
  • Exciting design possibilities
  • Extreme degrees of deformation
  • High performance lightweight & stiffness
  • Outstanding durability
  • Precision

In the area of conflict between weight reduction, thermal and mechanical loads and demanding cost structures, hydroforming mostly offers the best solution. Compared to components welded from half shells, hydroformed parts have a higher stiffness and acuracy. At the same time welding and joining operations can be eliminated and different functions or form elements can be directly integrated into the geometry.
