Hydroforming of aluminum


Following the installation of the HYPROLOC 3000 hydroforming machine at Anton Bauer GmbH & Co. KG in 1997, the company has performed numerous prototype developments. Recently, Anton Bauer produced an automotive structural component in aluminum, having a length of more than three meters (9.8 ft), in cooperation with a well-known manufacturer of semi-finished aluminum products. In the scope of several prototyping projects, Anton Bauer previously had produced similar components in steel. The prototyping test provides findings on the behavior of aluminum during hydroforming and can be applied to further prototype developments.
