Hydroforming presses

CNC hydroforming presses of Gefest-H.06 series are designed for hydraulic molding of parts of complex spatial shape from steel, non-ferrous alloys and titanium by pressing with a hydroelastic medium.


The sheet metal takes the form of a solid one-sided matrix under the action of an elastic rubber diaphragm, on the surface of which pressure is exerted by a working fluid (castor oil). High accuracy of matching the shape of the matrix is achieved due to hydrostatic compression of the sheet, in the same at all points of the surface and does not depend on the shape of the surface.

Advantages of hydroforming compared to traditional drawing 

  • No scratches on the surface of the part. No finishing maching required.
  • Small tolerances on parts relative to the matrix due to high hydrostatic pressure.
  • Possibility of cutting parts directly during the pressing process.
  • Low cost of the dies, short production time.
  • Manufacturing of parts with complex shapes, including cutouts and bending of edges.
  • Reducing preparation time for production and easy modification of the matrix when making changes to the product design
