Oval Tube Reduction

Our technicians here at Multiform Tube Engineering Ltd are experts when it comes to altering tubes. We have been working in this industry for decades. As a result, we have been able to support clients for a multitude of industries. This includes medical, construction, fabrication, automotive, and furniture. The manipulation services on offer here cover all kinds of jobs, including the likes of oval tube reduction.

This procedure has similarities to tube tapering. What we do is reduce the tube in size towards the end section. The reduction has its uses in many different places. For instance, we can supply external and internal flush joints, and more.

How does tube reduction work?

Oval Tube ReductionWe can perform this on hydraulic end formers and rotary reducing machines. The rotary route has some advantages. For one thing, there are no interruptions to the grain structures. As a result there is zero loss in integral strength. Additionally, the work pieces are able to be in a warm or hot state. Because of this, the service is ideal for heavy wall components.

Another fact about rotary reduction is that it can tube layer. It is here where tubes made of separate materials can get reduced together. The result is a sandwich effect that can increase strength whilst enabling the use of specific materials.

As for hydraulic end forming, it employs a static forming die as well as clamps. Using them, you can form tubes that are up to 5.5″ in diameter. This is much bigger than what you can reach with rotary reduction.

Using both methods, the wall thicknesses can reach 5mm. This is unless reduction happens through hot rotary. Tubes can be thicker here as the heat makes them more pliable.

What is so special about oval tubing?

Many people ask us why oval tubes are a good option for different projects. The truth is they can be incredibly beneficial. Due to its strong shape, there is less chance of it becoming misshapen. This is one of the reasons why we like using it.

Oval tubes are more compact as well, meaning they will use up less space. This characteristic makes them perfect if you are tight on room.

There is also the fact of the tubing being aerodynamic, making it appropriate for vehicle and exhaust pipe applications. It takes skill to use, but we are more than up to the task.
