The Hydroforming Process is Ideal for Paint Sprayer Carts, Exercise Equipment, High Performance Bicycles, Snow Mobiles, Jet Skis, ATVs and More

Fort Wayne, IN-In many applications, paint sprayers must be easily transportable. Hydroformed paint sprayer cart frames from American Hydroforming, Inc. (AHI) offer the strength and durability users demand.

"The hydroforming manufacturing process provides customers with abundant new opportunities and few constraints," says Todd Ellinger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for AHI. "Our experts are ready to discuss your specific needs to customize a hydroformed paint sprayer cart frame to stand up to your specific application requirements."

The hydroforming process can produce frames in any shape, either simple or complex. The hydroforming process is an outstanding choice for a wide array of frames including paint sprayer carts, exercise equipment, high performance bicycles, snow mobiles, jet skis and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).

As the advantages of hydroforming and fabricating become better understood, more metal fabricating applications arise. AHI offers superior solutions for many pressure forming challenges. AHI's unique metal forming, metal fabrication, tube bending, tube hydroforming and pressure forming capabilities enable the company to offer turnkey solutions -- from the time the hydroforming press closes to when the final hydroformed part is removed.

A simplified overview of the hydroform process is as follows: Raw tube is loaded into hydroforming dies and the hydroforming press closes. The sealing rods engage the part, seal the ends and fill it with water, increasing pressure inside the part. The sealing rods push the tube into the die (end feed) and the internal pressure is ramped to its maximum value. The hydroformed part takes on the shape of the die. Then, the final hydroformed part is removed.


American Hydroformers specializes in the hydroform tube forming process. American Hydroformers processes start with raw tube and progresses through tube bending, tube pre-forming, tube forming, tube hydroforming, laser cutting and trimming. Originally founded in 2003, American Hydroformers, Inc. was formed to create a larger portfolio of fabrication offerings for the Tippmann Affiliated Group, who manages companies across a broad scope of industries. The addition of hydroforming was a great fit to expand the product offerings from Summit Manufacturing and Zemco Manufacturing.
