Swaging machines are a low-cost way to efficiently point, reduce and form rod, tube or wire. Swaging is based on a simple principle. It is the process of shaping metal (forging) by means of a series of very rapid, blows delivered by rotating hammers and forming dies around a piece of work. It is a highly economical method to point tubing, rod, and wire for redraw, and to size, reduce, shape, taper, bond or form metal parts, hot or cold. Metal is formed – not machined – so there are no wasteful chips.

Swaging can be performed both hot or cold, although cold swaging is popular because of its hardening effect on most materials. The swaging process also improves grain structure, giving the part greater strength and in most cases an unusually fine finish.

Recognizing that there are literally hundreds of applications for swaging machines, FENN can provide optional equipment for your swager geared towards ease of use, process automation and operator safety.

Some of these include:

  • Manual or automated feed systems. Automation can increase operator safety and productivity.
  • Material handling systems
  • Maintenance friendly sound enclosures to reduce sound levels and promote operator safety
  • Slushing systems to help remove damaging dirt and foreign matter from the Swager’s cage assembly, while providing lubrication
  • Material heating for hot swaging applications
  • Electronically interlocked door guarding to ensure the machine cannot run while the door is open

Top-Notch Machines

In 2009 we decided to purchase our first ‘Z’ CNC Coiler. The efficiencies gained by reduced setup time, increased throughput, and significantly reduced scrap rate while holding extremely tight tolerances was immediately realized through a complete statistical analysis. The machine paid for itself within months. Success with our first Torin ‘Z’ CNC led Springfield Spring to purchase another ‘Z’ CNC coiler, followed by three more of the latest model, the Torin FZ Series. Our five newest Torin spring coilers replaced all of our mechanicals, freeing up substantial space for new business endeavors. Fenn not only produces a top-notch machine but their sales, service, applications, and technical professionals are second to none. Fenn acts and responds like a business partner, not your traditional machine ‘dealer’.
