What is Hydroforming?

Hydroforming is a metal forming process that swells the material into a die using a high pressure fluid. This forming process is a practical demonstration of Pascal’s Law, which states that external static pressure exerted on a fluid is distributed evenly throughout the fluid.

Tie Rods

What are Tie rods? Why do we need them?

Tie rods are devices, in the form of rods or bars that are attached to the expansion joint assembly whose primary function is to continuously restrain the full bellows pressure thrust during normal operation while permitting only lateral deflection.

Angular rotation can be accommodated only if 2 tie rods are used, located 90 deg opposed to the direction of rotation.
