Mild steel, strong results

Sometimes, the situation calls for a tube where the interior has been altered but the exterior remains the same. You might think that this is impossible, but for us, it’s a relatively simple task. We are capable of accomplishing such a feat using our tube swaging services.

The rotary swaging process involves placing a die inside your tube and then quickly hammering it. This effectively expands the inner diameter without affecting the outer diameter or warping the tube. With our assistance, you will be able to meet even the most challenging of specifications.

In terms of cost effectiveness and versatility, there aren’t many materials that can provide results as fantastic as mild steel can. The most customary of all steels, we depend on it daily for a wide assortment of applications. Best of all, it can be cut to size, and remoulded to match the user’s demands. That is why we use it constantly in our services.

So that you understand just how practical mild steel tubing is, we’re going to discuss some of the advantages to using it.

To begin with, the tubes are acutely ductile. Ductility, for those who don’t know, is how long elongation can plastically misshape a substance without it rupturing. Materials with enough durability can go beyond 15% before they become scarred indefinitely. In this regard, mild steel shares some similarities with thermoplastics and copper. It can stretch, bend, and have considerable forces introduced to it. This makes welding, shaping, and forming it an easier affair.

One potential disadvantage to mild steel is the less than desirable tensile strength. This can allow it to easily break when exposed to tension. Using the carburising method however, you can tackle the problem. This is a heat treatment procedure for steel that gets rid of carbon. Once cooled through quenching, the facet hardens while the innards stay tough and soft. This increases the tensile strength.

At Multiform Tubes, our tube swaging work can be used in conjunction with mild steel tubes to create some incredibly worthwhile outcomes. Due to the short cycle times, we can use this approach to generate your utensils rapidly whilst still maintaining the quality.
