Summary Hydroforming is one option to reduce vehicle weight while increasing component stiffness and rigidity. This typically involves using a fluid to form a component with high internal pressure. Tube hydroforming has gained increasing interest in the automotive and aerospace industries because of its many advantages such as part consolidation, good quality of the formed part etc. The main advantage is that the uniform pressure can be transferred to whole part at the same time. In low pressure hydroforming, the internal pressure is significantly and the hydroformed section length of line stays almost the same as the circumference of the blank tube. This paper details the comparison between high and low pressure hydroforming. It is shown that the internal pressure and holding force required for low pressure hydroforming process is much less than that of high pressure. Also stress and thickness distribution are more uniform and the process is highly suitable for the forming of advanced high strength steels.
