Brake forming is a low cost method of producing low volume -hi mix parts that require tight bends or specific radii typically found on small clips or brackets.
Hydroform USA have five brake forming machines ranging from 8' to 12' long. Our seasoned operators produce thousands of different parts each year. Most of the parts produced by the brake form area are details used in the kitting or assembly area.
Hydroform USA has numerous machines including large bed machines. Please see the list below for details.
The brake forming process supports Hydroform USA's one-stop-shop and reduced the length of the supply chain. We have a large inventory of common tooling which virtually eliminates the need for the customer to pay for tooling on brake formed parts.
