Mild steel is such a great material choice
This metal is that some people refer to as low carbon and plain carbon steel. It is a popular choice thanks to its relatively low price while having properties that make is great for a huge number of uses. For instance, many people prefer to use it because of the fact that it has a capacity for recycling and is malleable. Mild steel has the benefit of formability, strength, and versatility too, making it fantastic for tubes.
A little bit on mild steel tube swaging
With swaging, it is possible to increase or decrease the diameter of a tube. You can do this with the use of a die. The process involves putting the tube within the die so that it can then be hammered radially with a fair amount of force. It is also possible to expand it by putting a mandrel inside of the tube and applying radial compressive forces to the outer diameter. This means that the inner diameter can be a different shape than the outer, such as a hexagon and a circle.
This work allows for the creation of symmetrical parts on relatively low cost and simple equipment. It is rather useful as it is a way to finish tubes and get what you need without wasting any material.
While forging uses heat in order to mould tubes, swaging is a process cold-worked under high pressure. Essentially, it is a tube deformation that allows you to attach one tube to another and form a final shape. When the tools reshape the fitting, it produces a permanent connection between the tubes.
This is a process that has been around for rather a long time. A lot of people don’t recognise the value of the fact that it can save on manufacturing costs. It has many applications with examples including furniture, automotive, and aerospace.
