Using hydraulic formers, all manner of forms can be achieved. Each expansion produced in increments of approximately 15 percent up to the maximum of the tube’s limitations. Again a variety of metals can be operated on including stainless, non ferrous and titanium.
(Tube end flaring can be used in conjunction with tube reducing increasing the scope of form achievable)
Using hydraulic forming equipment, the multi station forming head can be loaded with several punches to deliver multiple operations within a single cycle therefore reducing process times and is thus more cost effective.
