SWAGING


In the steel industry swaging is commonly a cold worked process by which the dimension of a steel tube is altered by using a die.

The steel tube, usually a round tube, is forced through the die to decrease the outside diameter of the last part of the steel tube. Swaging is more often than not done on a tube that does not require to be of cosmetic value such as poles for tents and cleaning equipment.

Tubecon is able to swage steel tubes with diameters up to 32mm though we would be able to assist customers with larger steel sections.
