Rotary swaging is a process for reducing the diameter of a length of tubing. The reduced diameter can be any length, from a short end up to the entire length of the tube.
The tubing is fed by hand, or mechanically, into custom made steel dies. Through the reciprocating action of the die halves, the tube is worked into the shape cut in the dies. Glyne has 10 swaging machines capable of handling up to 3.00” diameter, and tapers up to 15” long in a single pass.
