The specialty car market requires a wide variety of unique and original types of parts and components. It takes a unique and original type of fabricator to meet the highly specialized requirements of the hot rod automotive industry.

At Helander, we understand how to make components that will have the structural integrity to withstand the temperatures and conditions found in engines and high-performance vehicles.

In order to fabricate these featured specialty car components, we use a combination of metal spinning and hydroforming processes. Working with stainless steel and CRS, the material is spun to form the cylindrical shapes, tight curves, and intricate grooves required of these components.

By applying sheet hydroforming capabilities, we complete the fabrication of the parts to the client’s precise specifications. Typical material thicknesses range from 0.047” to 0.125”, with tolerances typically held to +/-0.003”.

Our outstanding metal spinning capabilities form high-performance parts with the hardness, tensile strength, reliability, and resistance to fatigue that is required by the hot rod industry. To learn more about our specialty car components and other services, please contact Helander today.
