Swaging / Reducing


Application: swaging is a special type of forging in which metal is formed by a succession of rapid hammer blows. Used to reduce the outer diameter of round, flat or square rod, pipe or tubing, swaging provides a reduced round cross section suitable for tapping, threading, upsetting or other subsequent forming and machining operations. Swaged components benefit from increased tensile strength and improved appearance as a result of this hot forging process. Swaging also minimizes stress points commonly caused by milling ends for threading. If only one end is swaged, the other end can be formed or machined to your specifications.

Finish: plain, passivated or painted are available.

Cost Savings Tip: use swaging to eliminate welded/threaded studs and extra components. Swaging is less expensive than other methods of shaping due to the elimination of all metal removal. Externally swaged and threaded linkages assembled to female linkage ends always cost less than male linkage ends assembled into internal threads. Let MCP help you by recommending the most effective type and size of material.

Materials: carbon, stainless and aluminum.
