Hydroforming & deep draw is sometimes referred to as “fluid forming” or “rubber diaphragm forming”.
Hydroforming sheet metal is a process developed to manufacture short to medium run quantities of deep-drawn parts, and compliments other techniques of metal forming, for example, metal spinning, stamping, and fabrications.
At Charles Schillinger, deep drawing steel, aluminum, brass and deep drawing stainless steel are the primary materials we are asked to work with when manufacturing enclosures, metal cans and equipment housings. On occasion clients ask us to manufacture deep drawn copper vessels and deep drawing aluminum components.
