Tube end forming is as it sounds, where you take a tube of any type of metal and form the end of it into different shapes needed for the project. There are different types of tube end forming to choose from. One is the end reduction, this is usually where you reduce the outside diameter of the tube end. This is usually done so it will fit inside the regular diameter of the same type of tube on the other end. Of course, the process determines the use of the tube end forming machines
End expansion expands the outside diameter of the tube end. Another type of tube end forming is the compression and rotary beading. This is usually used for industries that need to use an O-ring or to connect hoses. The other type of end forming is the single flare. This is used to make a liquid-tight or airtight connection.
