A brief summary of tube swaging

tube swagingThis is a process of rotary swaging. This is the hammer forming process for the reduction cross-section of solids, tubes, and wires. Rotary swaging produces circular concentric reductions or regular forms, such as Hexagonal, octagonal and squares. This is on one or both ends of a tube, or right the way through a tube. This, in turn, can make the inner tube a different shape while the outer remains circular and can increase or decrease the diameter of a tube.

The process involves inserting a die inside the tube and hammering rapidly. This die opens and closes rapidly creating the shape. With our work, the die rotates to get you your finished product.

There are several benefits of this work, for example, there are short cycle times that provide you with your end product efficiently and quickly. Furthermore, regardless of the shape on the interior, you end up with good, circular, smooth finishes on the exterior. Additionally, there are tight tolerances and no material loss. To clarify, swaging uses an impact process as opposed to cutting so integral strength remains the same. This adds to the increased wall thickness and minimum notch effect.
