Hydroforming - makes the impossible possible

Is it possible to manufacture a “one piece” product? There is a good chance if the right parameters are chosen. By having some basic understanding of hydroforming and material selection the probability increases for a cost-effective solution with tight tolerances and large numbers of parts out of tool with high repetitions. The benefits of hydroforming can be described as – complex shapes/geometrics is possible to achieve and with that comes a stronger, lighter- and more rigid body structure.
