Our Swagers support the automotive manufacturing industry through many applications including:

  • Drive Shafts
  • Half- Shaft / Axels

We provide high-quality swagers as a low-cost way to efficiently point, reduce and form rod, tube or wire. Swaging is the process of forging metal by means of a series of rapid blows, delivered by rotating hammers and forms dies, around a piece of work. This can be performed as a hot or cold process, although cold swaging is popular because of its hardening effect on most materials. To learn more about FENN swagers, click here.
