Article Preview

Currently, tube hydroforming and metal micro-forming technique have emerged as the attractive and important developing tendencies in industry. Hence, in this study, the finite element simulation technique was employed to investigate the micro-hydroforming for making the micro-square tube with non-equal section and dendritic shape from square tube. Results of the current study show that the deformation of micro-square tube can be effectively analyzed by finite element simulation. The bulging and wall thinning of the tube are severely influenced not only by the internal hydraulic pressure but also by the punch axial feeding speed.
