An introduction to tube reduction

Furniture Tube ReductionThis fantastic service has similarities to tube tapering, where we reduce the diameter of a section at the end. It is work that is typically performed on hydraulic end formers or with the use of rotary reducing machines.

The rotary technique has its advantages. To give an example, there are no interruptions to the grain structure, leading to no losses in integral strength. Your work pieces can be in warm or hot conditions too, making it the perfect option for working with heavy wall components.

Rotary reduction can tube layer too. What you do here is slip tubes of differing materials together. You can then reduce them at the same time to create a sandwich effect. This gives you more freedom in terms of combining materials to get different levels of strength and other vital characteristics.

Hydraulic end forming makes use of a static forming die as well as clamps. It is able to form tubes that are up to 5.5″ in diameter. This is much greater than what it is possible to achieve with rotary reduction. So, if you have wider tubes, it is the method you should go for.

When using both methods, wall thicknesses can reach 5mm. The only way you can tackle thicker walls is by choosing hot rotary reduction.

We can use tubing to create many products

Furniture tube reduction is a service you can rely on to adapt sections very accurately. We chose to offer it because metal tubes are perfect for creating various pieces of furniture. For example, you can make everything from desk chairs to tables and bed frames. The tube is even found in your cupboards as railings. Your materials could be functional or decorative in nature. It all depends on design and the user’s specifications.

There are several reasons why metal tubes are so good for creating furniture. For one thing, it is a cost efficient approach, even if you are using a more expensive metal like titanium. In addition, the tubing’s nature means they tend to be lightweight. With furnishings, this is often an essential characteristic.

Arguably the largest advantage of using tubes for furniture is the adaptability. You can modify your tube in a myriad of interesting ways. To give an example, you can bend part of a section to create angled and curved parts. You can get creative with the designs and allow your product to meet all sorts of requirements.
