Tube end expansion is mainly performed using horizontal pneumatic and hydraulic end forming equipment adapted by Techniswage technicians to suit our own requirements. By producing tooling in house, quality and development can be totally controlled. A wide variety of tube end expansion can be achieved and is used in conjunction with other forming processes.
- Maximum finished diameter for tube end expansion – 150/160mm
- Maximum start wall thickness for tube end expansion – 5/6mm
Using hardened tooling and multi station forming heads on some machines, simultaneous tube end expansions can be achieved creating a variety of forms.
