Swaging has a number of advantages over other methods of material reduction. We specialise in swaging metal into non standard shapes e.g. flats into round, square section into round or four sided tapers.
• Improved surface finish.
• Zero material wastage (when swaging the material will grow in length)
• Uses low-cost tooling.
• Improves grain structure & tensile strength of material.
The Swaging process reduces the diameter or produces a taper on a round work piece. This can be solid or tube. The swaging machine works by using 2, 3 or 4 opposing split dies which separate and close up to 2000 times a minute.
