Multiform Tubes Engineering Ltd has spent years providing various types of manipulation services to its clients. Due to our experience in the industry, we can create tubing that can serve all kinds of purposes. We can even offer hydraulic tube reduction if you need it. This is certainly something you should consider if standard tubular products won’t suit you.
How does tube reduction work?
This is a procedure that uses hydraulic end formers or rotary reducing mechanisms. The latter is quite advantageous. For one thing, there isn’t any interruption to the grain structure. It guarantees that there won’t be any loss in integral strength. It is also suitable for work pieces that are in a warm or hot state. As a result, it is perfect for heavy wall components.
In addition, rotary reduction can tube layer, a technique where you can reduce tubes made of separate materials together. This generates a sandwich effect. It can improve the strength while letting you use specific materials.
As for hydraulic end forming, it uses a static forming die and clamps. This technique is capable of forming tubes up to 5.5″ in diameter. That is superior to what you can do using rotary reduction.
Finally, it is also worth noting that wall thicknesses can reach 5mm with both methods of reduction. The exception is if you reduce using hot rotary. They can be thicker here.
The best qualities of hydraulic tubing
Tube reduction processes are appropriate for tubes made of a wide variety of materials too, including hydraulic tubing. It can account for the hardness of different metals, from tough steel to softer copper.
One of the most common uses for the hydraulic tubing is transporting substances like gas or water. Because of this, the tubes have to be free of leaks. Consequently, people favour the seamless types. If you compare them to sections with weld seams, they are more reliable. After all, there is no seam to worry about. Moreover, they can have greater strength as a result.

Normally, the steels used to produce hydraulic tubing are normalised. This is a special heat treatment. What it does is help to improve the flexibility, making them easier to work with. You will therefore be able to do numerous forms of manipulation and bending. The normalisation alters the steel’s microstructure, increasing its ductility.
Something to remember while working on hydraulic tubes is that the surface and inner diameter have to be precise. Any problems with the two can lead to massive complications in the system. If you must adapt the tubes, you need to be careful. By taking enough care, you can preserve the diameter and internal surface finish to avoid things like crinkling.
