Tube Forming/Fabrication

With the recent acquisition of Micro-Tube Fabricators, Wytech has substantially advanced its tube forming/fabrication operations. This includes utilizing a host of advanced and conventional technologies including Wire EDM, Four-Slide, punch presses, end forming, swaging, and more. Also, Wytech’s engineering and toolmaking staff are ready to assist in the design and development process to assure maximum production efficiencies are achieved.

Bending

Expansion/Reduction

  • Maximum expansion ─ 30 x tube OD
  • Equipment ─ Vaill end formers, Wauseon end formers, and more

 End Forming ─ Shapes

  • Square cuts, custom end profiles, and more
  • Equipment ─ Vaill end formers, Wauseon end formers, and more

Bulging/Beading

  • Normal bulge + bead is 1.30 x tube OD
  • Equipment ─ Vaill end formers, Four-Slide

 Swaging

  • Reduce tubing sizes, pencil points, and more
