Hydro-formed Frame Tubing
Hydro-forming is a method of shaping metals into lightweight, structurally stiff and strong components. The automotive industry is one of the largest applicators of hydro-forming, which makes use of the complex shapes possible by hydro-forming to produce stronger, lighter, and more rigid uni-body structures for vehicles. The hydro-forming manufacturing technique is frequently employed in the shaping of aluminum tubes for performance bicycle frames.
