Wiesbaden/Göppingen – HEATform GmbH of Wiesbaden, Germany, and Schuler Hydroforming GmbH & Co. KG based in Wilnsdorf, Germany, have entered into an extensive strategic agreement concerning cooperation on HEATforming (Hot Expansion Air Technology Forming). This newly developed technology uses inner pressure to form pre-warmed hollow shapes. The process offers far greater metal deformation at lower prices when compared with conventional hydroforming applications. With immediate effect, Schuler Hydroforming will not only be offering HEATforming lines exclusively and worldwide but also supporting customers with die construction, prototyping and contract manufacturing.

- Change the market circumference.
Car production in Asia is occupied approximately 34% of global market share. Hyundai-Kia motor group has dramatically progressed in the car industry based on best quality policy since Korean government had to request for liquidity provision from International monetary fund(IMF) in 1997 because exchange rate gave Korean companies more cost merit in the world market. So, at the period, turnover of Hyundai-Kia motor group was sharply boosted so that the company was able to focus on quality issues. This progress is directly influent on its subsidiary company that had to modify their philosophy from quantity base to quality based organization. In addition to this market circumference, light-weight vehicle is the major trend of OEM car makers with regard to demands for fuel efficient vehicle and environmental standards.

De techniek van het hydrovormen van buisvormige 1) onderdelen laat zich in enkele zinnen vangen: plaats het buisvormige uitgangsmateriaal in de matrijs, sluit de beide uiteinden af, vul de buis met water en zet de zaak onder druk. De buis zal afhankelijk van de druk de vorm van de matrijs benaderen of aannemen. Daarbij wordt gebruikgemaakt van de rekeigenschappen van het uitgangsmateriaal. Het product dat met behulp van deze relatief schone vervormingstechnologie vervaardigd kan worden, ziet er fraai en onbeschadigd uit, vertoont bijvoorbeeld niet de groeven die vaak bij het dieptrekken ontstaan, en is bovendien goed aan de maat. Het hydrovormen blijkt voor steeds meer kleinere tot middelgrote 3D-producten een interessante technologie, die bovendien tot interessante kostenbesparingen kan leiden.

1) De techniek is in principe te gebruiken voor het vervormen van plaatvormige producten; in dit artikel gaan we alleen in op de vervormingstechniek voor buisvormige werkstukken.

The sense of this statement is as old as the Genesis itself and usually implies a favorable condition. However, growth of micro organisms in a water system used as a hydroforming pressure media might not be favorable.

A professional authority for metal working in Southern Germany divides the kind and frequency of micro organisms into two broad groups:

a. Surface-to-air growths that are harmless to humans (Risk Group 1 in their Biological Substance Decree brochure.
b. Growths that can infect humans in certain cases (Facultative Pathogen growths: Risk Group 2)

After successful MBO: healthy order books and figures well in the black for the hydroforming specialists “hde Solutions GmbH”

Menden, 22nd July 2003. There have been some difficult times for the venerable family business of “hde Metallwerk GmbH” of Menden in the Sauerland. In the autumn of 2002, the collapse of the semi-finished parts business brought about by the recession in the economy pushed the whole company into insolvency. But the four-man management of Managing Director Tom Graf continued to believe in the potential of the company. After all, this traditional company had been one of the first to make industrial use of hydroforming technology, establishing its innovation leadership over recent decades lastly under the Development Manager Stefan Geißler. There were also good prospects for hde in the business area of heat technology. These would have to be developed.

Water. It seems so innocent when flowing from a kitchen tap, but anyone who's ever dealt with the hysteria of a burst pipe recognizes its stunning power. Indeed, one of nature's most abundant and essential resources is also one of its most forceful.
Today, GM is harnessing the force of water to shape metal. The concept, called hydroforming, holds tremendous potential for the future of automotive design and manufacturing.

What goes around comes around…
Hydroforming has been around for about a century, but only recently has it been tapped for automotive uses. Long ago, metalworkers crafted items such as doorknobs, plumbing fixtures and musical instruments using hydroforming techniques.
