Hydroforming is a cold-forming manufacturing process, in which a fluid under pressure forms a ductile material against a matrix, shaping it into the desired form.

Areas of application

It can be applied to both sheets and tubes. It is a process that allows us to obtain parts with a precise shape and high strength.


In Atik Automotive we are specialists in the use of this technique. We have machinery for obtaining tubes of any shape, often used in exhaust systems or as structural parts. We also have machinery for obtaining bellows or waves in the tubes, which provide a larger surface area for cooling. This gives the element more flexibility for its assembly.
