End Forming ToolsThere are many applications for shaping the tube ends.
End forming tools are used for expanding, reducing and calibrating the tube diameters. They change the circumference of a tube, which can allow the tube to connect to other components (e.g. other tubes, hoses or flanges). The primary uses for end forming include flaring, deburring, or beading a tube.
Omni-X has primarily focused on shaping tube ends in the automobile industry. The end forming tools are used within this industry to finish exhaust systems. We denote our tools with either "I/O" (Inside/Outside) or "C" for machines with a capacity up to 3 inches.
