Ask The Experts - Interlaken Technology

Hydro DieHydroformed parts are stronger and weigh less due to structural integrity and fewer welds or add-on pieces. Using fewer welds helps to reduce vibration and noise in motorized vehicles (autos, motorcycles, aircraft, etc). In addition, costs are reduced and time is saved by eliminating secondary operations, reducing scrap, lowering material and manufacturing costs, and increasing design flexibility. With superior control over forces and motions, Interlaken's Hydroforming Press provides a greater overall quality of formed parts.

Warm Forming
Ask The Experts - Interlaken Technology

Warm FormerInterlaken's Warm Forming Press Systems allow for tighter formed radii, better elongation and deep draws that cannot be achieved at room temperature. In some cases, aluminum elongations can be more than 100%.

Using warm forming, much larger parts can be formed on a smaller system due to the lower forming pressures required, making warm forming a cost-effective production method. Furthermore, Interlaken's Warm Forming Press has a small footprint and fits well into a workcell environment.

Hot Stamping Systems

Hot StamperInterlaken's Hot Stamping Press provides the flexibility and advantage of utilizing the much sought-after high strength materials without the worry of springback often found in these high-strength steels. Interlaken's extensive research and production system expertise has put them on the leading edge in hot stamping system technology.
