Quality of the Hydroformed Tubular Parts


Article Preview

In this paper the authors shows hydroforming of tubular parts. Also it presents the technology of the hydroforming of the tubular parts. It is presented some experimental research compared with the prediction of the numerical simulation of this process. There are presented also the mechanical parameters of the material which are used in the field of the deforming process.
