What you need to know

This is a simple yet effective metal forming process. The process helps to form a bead on the very end of a tube. It has many benefits, for example, it can help to hold a hose on the end of a tube. Furthermore, it can also strengthen the end of the tube. There are two distinct forming processes to beading; this includes ram forming and internal roll forming.

Ram forming is quicker than internal roll forming. People generally use it when production speed is of great importance and when creating products for the automotive industry. During the process, a clamp is used to hold the tube in place. Then, the tube is expanded to the desired measurements via the use of an expansion punch, and another punch is then used to reduce the tube back to its pilot diameter. This process allows for multiple beads whereas internal roll forming does not.

Although internal roll forming is generally slower than ram forming, it has advantages of its own such as holding much tighter tolerances. The head is formed by the use of serrated clamp jams which hold the tube in place, and an axial pressure is then applied to create the head.
