Integrated manufacturing by forming, joining and cutting - Laser technology and systems engineering

Project Status: finished


Hydroforming is an efficient technology for manufacturing sheet metal light-weight parts and offers various advantages, for example a homogeneous hardening, external tolerated parts and the possibility of realising undercuts. Whereas the hydroforming of tubes is already applied in industry, the hydroforming of sheets has to be analyzed in fundamental investigations in order to create a better process understanding.
