An Experienced Aerospace Hydroforming Manufacturer
Cutting Dynamics is a leading provider of hydroformed parts and services to major fixed wing, government, and helicopter OEM’s and more, worldwide.
We added our first hydroforming center to our Avon, Ohio facility in 2008 and it’s been our goal to keep expanding and innovating. Most recently, we announced the addition of a new fluid cell press capable of 10,000 psi.
To discover all that Cutting Dynamics can do to meet your company’s hydroforming needs, read on to our capabilities and advantages sections
Our Hydroforming Process Capabilities
At Cutting Dynamics, we are able to deep draw sheet metal components from aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel, giving our clients versatility when determining what best fits their company’s requirements.
Our in-house engineering and tooling capabilities combined with the redundancy of multiple presses enables Cutting Dynamics to offer a large production capacity. Ultimately, this means a much faster response to client needs.
Our team also specializes in low volume production, which means we can perform smaller run production of components with distinctive efficiency.
Additionally, we’re always looking for ways to improve. To learn about the addition of our fluid cell hydroform press, visit our Triform press page.
Advantages of Hydroforming
Hydroforming is a process in which the sheet metal is forced to take the shape of only a single rigid die by the action of fluid pressure, which acts through a rubber diaphragm.
One key advantage of this process is that only a single rigid die is needed, making it possible to form more complex shapes wrinkle-free and with material thinning of less than 10%.
Other advantages of utilizing hydroforming for your operations include:
- Sheet thickness which is uniformly distributed
- High dimensional accuracy
- High material efficiency
- Uniform strength with less product waste
- High surface quality for the end-product due to no direct contact with any tool
- High precision and pressure control
- Useful for a range of applicable materials, such as aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel
- Cost savings due to removing the need for steel tooling
As you can see, the benefits of hydroforming are varied, making hydroforming for aerospace and other industrial uses a worthwhile decision.
