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.

  Performance of lubricants in internal high pressure forming of tubes
Posted by: Hydro_Publishing on Wednesday, January 29, 2003 - 10:32 PM
 
  Information from the PtU Darmstadt
670 Reads

In an Internal High Pressure Forming (IHPF) process several forming zones are distinguished based on contact normal stress, sliding velocity, and degree of deformation. The precise design of an IHPF process requires an extensive investigation of the tribological conditions in these different zones. So far laboratory investigation of tribology in IHPF processes has involved pushing a pressurized tube through a tool in order to measure the friction force or determine the friction coefficient. However, such experimental set-ups only represent the guiding zone of IHPF. The prevailing loads require a careful consideration of the individual forming zones. This led to the establishment of further experimental setups for the investigation of transition and expanding zones. These experimental setups, in particular those for the expanding zone, permit a more accurate examination of the friction properties of lubricants. Thus, performance differences that would be indiscernible using the traditional guiding zone test are revealed. Oil and slide lacquer were compared to one another. Differences in friction coefficients in the guiding zone area were not too large and the potential of the slide lacquer was first revealed in experiments in the expanding zone.
