At Multiform Tubes Engineering Ltd we make great use of a number of techniques to adapt tubing. As a result we can offer services to suit a wide array of projects. One thing we can do is provide first rate rotary tube swaging. It can reduce the wall thickness and increase the inner diameter of a section. Plus, with skill and the right tooling, it can change the shape of the ID.
The rotary swaging process is high performance and can work on many different types of metal tubing. It is a great option for all kinds of projects and offers some useful advantages. Most notably it is cost effective and can enhance the strength of a piece of tubing.
How is it low cost?
The great thing about swaging is it is an entirely mechanical process that does not require you to heat the tube. Straight away that ensures you save on costs. In addition, there is usually no need for any further processing or finishing once you swage the tube. That means no further outlay.
The amount of deformation you can achieve with tube swaging is really impressive. This means you can avoid the need to do any additional annealing or treatments. In turn you need to do fewer operations to get your final part. This is much more cost effective and also saves a great deal of time.
The technique is also much cheaper than relying on more costly machining processes. As a result it is a great option if you want to keep the production cost down.
Enhancing the strength
The key thing here is that the process does not cut material away from the tube. In addition, it does not change the grain structure. All it does it hammer the inner diameter of the section to reduce the tube wall thickness. This is a much better option than having to cut material away and create potential weak spots. The compression of the wall can also enhance the strength by making it more compact and harder.
