Abstract

Tube hydroforming is used to describe the metal forming process whereby tubes are formed into complex shapes with a die cavity using internal pressure which is usually obtained by various means such as hydraulic, viscous medium, elastomers, polyurethanes and axial compressive forces simultaneously. Increasing use of hydroforming in automotive applications requires intensive research and development on all aspects of this new technology to satisfy an ever-increasing demand by the industry. A technological review of hydroforming process from its early years to very recent dates on various topics such as material, tribology, equipment, tooling are summarizes.
