Summary Tube hydroforming has been widely used to produce automotive structural components due to the superior properties of the hydroformed parts in terms of their light weight and structural rigidity. Compared to the traditional manufacturing process for a closed-section member including stamping and followed by welding, tube-hydro forming leads to cost savings due to reduced tooling and material handling. However, the high pressure pumps and high tonnage press required in hydroforming, lead to increased capital investment reducing the cost benefits. This study explores low pressure tube hydro forming which reduces the internal fluid pressure and die closing force required to produce the hydroformed part. The experimental and numerical analysis was for low pressure hydro formed stainless steel tubes. Die filling conditions and thickness distributions are measured and critically analysed.
