A bulge forming press is ideal for manufacturing parts large, domed parts from a variety of materials including aluminum, steel, and other high-strength alloys. Bulge forming is becoming increasingly popular among manufacturers because of its ability to use air or water to produce large seamless, lightweight, “near-net-shape” parts. From aerospace and automotive to oil and gas, bulge forming allows manufacturers to quickly and accurately form complex shapes like tank heads and rupture discs.
