  Press Relase: Valiant and Anton Bauer Increase Their Hydroforming Capabilities
Posted by: Börries Burkhardt on Thursday, June 13, 2002 - 10:36 PM
News Anton Bauer GmbH & Co Kg, based in Saarland, Germany has been associated with the Valiant Group of Companies since 1998. In December 2001, Anton Bauer GmbH & Co KG and Valiant Holdings GmbH formalized their relationship which has resulted in a stronger organization with significantly increased hydroforming potential.
On the occasion of a Valiant Hydroforming Systems plant tour sponsored by the Automotive Tube Hydroforming Association (held in Detroit, Michigan/Windsor, Ontario - May 14-16, 2002) Valiant introduced its newly built hydroform machine “HYPROLOC 3000” to the participants of the congress (fig. 1 to 4).

This state-of-the-art hydroform machine is a production machine with a maximum locking force of 60,000 kN. and a maximum of 60,000 psi internal pressure. Valiant will use the “HYPROLOC 3000” solely for prototyping and small batch production at its 6161 Tecumseh Road plant located in Windsor, Ontario.

With this machine, all types of tube hydroforming processes can be done, as well as, flat sheet hydroforming applications.

On May 16th, Valiant demonstrated its flat sheet hydroforming capabilities to a select group of Automotive Tube Hydroforming Association participants. A flat metal sheet was sheared into 4 individual sections or parts during the die closing, and then the parts were hydroformed after the die closure. A finished part was presented to each participant who joined in the plant tour. The finished part formed the base of a unique “hydroformed clock” (fig 5).
