What is swaging?

Aluminium shop fitting tube swagingA lot of people ask this question. It is basically a rotary hammer forming procedure for the cross-section reduction of wires, solids, and tubes. It generates circular concentric reductions or regular forms. Examples include squares, octagonal, and hexagonal. You can do it on one end of the tube or both. In turn, the work can make the tube interior a different shape with no change to the exterior. Also, it can increase or decrease the tube’s diameter.

The work consists of inserting a die into the tube. The die opens and closes swiftly, hammering the inside of the tube. This is what changes the shape and/or alters the size.

The swaging work has many advantages. For instance, cycle times are short. As a result, you receive the end product faster and more efficiently. What’s more, no matter the interior’s shape, you keep a decent, smooth finish on the exterior.

The process makes use of an impact process instead of cutting. So, there is no material loss, as well as tighter tolerances. Integral strength stays the same too. Overall, it is a fantastic option. If you’re looking at aluminium shop fitting tube swaging, it’s well worth the investment.

The reasons why we use aluminium tubes

Shop fittings exist in a multitude of forms, including shelves, railings, and racks. The reasons aluminium tube in particular is useful for them are numerous. Let’s look at some of them.

Durability is one of the main advantages to using the tubes. Aluminium is a substance that’s less vulnerable to the effects of time and the elements. Whether it’s cold or hot, or rainy or windy, it can last longer than other materials.

Another reason for using the tubing is the strength. For the likes of shop fittings, it will more than suffice. You will get the structural integrity you are after for things like racks and displays. In addition to lasting a long time, the tubes will put up with the weight of all those products you need to store.

Low maintenance needs and high strength are nice. However, shop owners need things that are also attractive to look at. Aluminium succeeds again here. You can form the tubes into whatever shape or style you need. This gives you more freedom when it comes to fittings. You could be after something straightforward or more complex; these tubes can give you both.

The cost of aluminium is something else that draws people to it. If you compare to other materials, prices are competitive. This is particularly true when you compare it to steel fittings.

Something else worth noting is that aluminium is an eco-friendly material. It has one of the highest recycling rates of all resources. The tubes for shop fittings are no exception. In the event one has damage, you can recycle the materials. From there, it can become a new product. There will be no need to send anything to the landfill or use new resources.
