Tube End-Forming Applications

Most Commonly Applied Pipe & Tube End-Forms

Below are examples and descriptions of some of the most commonly needed tube end-forms. Our team can make end-forms on pipe or tube up to 7" O.D.

Tube Beading | Pipe Beading

TUBE BEADING - Beading is an end-forming process that puts a bead on the end of a pipe or tube. We are capable of making all types of beads on tubing, including marmon beads.

 

Tube End-Forming - Pipe Expanding

EXPANDING - Tube expanding is the process in which a piece of pipe or tube is enlarged at one end so another piece of pipe or tube of the same diameter can fit into and connect to the piece that has been expanded.

 

Tube ReducingREDUCING - Tube reducing is the process in which a piece of pipe or tube is crimped on the end in order to fit another piece of pipe or tube of the same diameter to fit over the reduced end.

 

Tube and Pipe FlaringFLARING - Tube flaring is the process in which a piece of pipe or tube is made flared out at the end. This is a typical process done to pipe or tubing when a pressure resistant, and leak-free seal is needed. Typically seen in hydraulic type components.

 

Pipe SwagingSWAGING - Pipe swaging is the process in which the dimension of the pipe or tube end is altered by being reduced or tapered down in diameter.

 

Pipe ThreadingTHREADING - The process in which a piece of pipe or tube is threaded at one end or both ends in order to connect another piece of pipe or tube by screwing them together.
