Since 2002, Fluid Forming has been developing and manufacturing hydroforming machines. With the FormBalancer, we have established a new sheet metal forming process.
FormBalancer hydroforming machines
The FormBalancer is a hydroforming machine that shapes metal sheets into a tool mould by applying very high pressures. Pressures up to 4000 bars acting on the formed part have to be produced by high tool closing forces without generating leaks or bending the tool.
Production of fuel cells / heat exchangers
The FormBalancer FB - FC series stands for large batch production of bipolar plates for fuel cell stacks as well as for heat exchanger production.
Endogenous high pressure forming

The endogenous high pressure forming technology, which has been known for years, applies high pressure to a hollow body that in most cases is open at two ends (e.g. tube) using a fluid.
