Techniswage are micro tube forming specialists. At Techniswage, components (tube or wire) smaller than 2mm in diameter are classed as micro parts. These items can be formed out of most metals (copper, brass, stainless or mild steel) and can be manipulated by means of hydraulic or rotary methods depending on the micro tube forming profile required.
Expanding, reducing or even short tapers on tubes as small as 1mm diameter can be achieved. These micro tube forming parts are required by industries as diverse as medical cannulae or throttle linkage pins for jet engines.
Butt forming of tube and rod can also be produced. This is the reducing of the centre section by rotary swaging when the process prevents any material being removed to achieve a smaller diameter beyond the end sections. Again this can be carried out on tube or wire.
Other components classed as micro tube forming are parts for thermocouples compressing, EDM guide tubes, blood testing needles and meat probes.
