Specialists in swaging and pointing.
Solid or tubular materials.

Our swaging process enables us to manipulate metal into non-standard shapes e.g. flats into round, square sections into round or four-sided tapers.

What are the benefits of Swaging?

• Improved surface finish.
• Zero material wastage (when swaging the material will grow in length)
• Uses low-cost tooling.
• Improves grain structure & tensile strength of the material.

The Swaging Process

The Swaging process typically involves working solid or tubular material in the cold or heated form to reduce the diameter, produce a taper, add a point, or other desired shape.

With rotary-based swaging machines, two or four split swaging dies are used to hammer a round workpiece into a smaller diameter, as shown in our illustration. This process is usually called rotary swaging or radial forging and can operate up to 2,000 motions a minute.

We also have in-house forming methods that can be adapted to perform a swaging process where conventional processes are not suitable.  For example, reducing solid flats to form a round bar section at one end.
