Tube expansion is where we use all sorts of techniques to open up the tube’s end. This lets you use it in a plethora of interesting ways. Most importantly, you can get a leak proof, snug fit onto other tubes. It is possible to use two methods to gain the right results.

How do we do it?

Automotive Tube ExpansionRam forming expansion is the first method. What we do here is use a dedicated, tapered die that functions as a mould. Extreme pressure forces the die into the tube’s end. What this does is widen the inner diameter by compressing the tube wall. The die will be a specific diameter and size. What this means is that it creates specific expansions for certain tubes.

The second method makes use of a hydraulic die with finger style segments that can open and close. You can control how far they open and the speed. The action hammers the internal surface of the tube, compressing the wall gradually. This option allows for increased flexibility in range and size. You can also get a far more specific measurement.

Expansion is something you can do on the majority of metals. Generally, you can expand them up to 5/6mm in diameter. However the exact level will vary depending on the hardness of the metal.
