Homogenous Material Forming
The swaging dies perform high frequency radial movements with short strokes and apply compressive force onto the enclosed workpiece. In the majority of cases a swaging unit consists of four dies. Depending on the application also between two and eight dies can be used.
The forming process takes place in many small processing steps. Therefore, rotary swaging can be described as an incremental forming process.
One advantage compared to the continuous forming process is the homogenous material forming, which achieves high forming ratios.
