What is Tube Manipulation?

Tube manipulation refers to the process of shaping, bending, or forming metal tubes or pipes to achieve specific geometries or configurations. This process is commonly used in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, and manufacturing. Tube manipulation can involve techniques such as bending, flaring, swaging, expanding, reducing, and welding.

Bending is one of the primary techniques used in tube manipulation, where the tube is bent to a desired angle or radius using specialized equipment such as tube bending machines. Flaring involves expanding the end of a tube to create a wider opening, often for connecting with other tubes or fittings. Swaging is the process of reducing the diameter of a tube by forcing it through a constricted die, typically used for joining tubes together or creating a tapered end. Expanding and reducing are processes used to adjust the diameter of a tube, either by stretching it to increase the diameter or compressing it to decrease the diameter.

Tube manipulation requires precision and expertise to ensure that the final product meets the required specifications and standards. It is often used in the production of components for various applications, including exhaust systems, structural frames, hydraulic systems, and fluid transport systems.
