End Forming

The correct tube end form ensures a proper seal of the pressurized brake and fuel lines for automotive applications, making it a mission critical to the safe and reliable operation of a vehicle. Monitoring the force during the end forming process generates a characteristic signature profile resulting from the resistance of the material during the metal forming and flaring of the tube end. This signature profile is very repeatable for a controlled process. Typical contributors to degradation of end form quality are tool wear, tube slipping, change in material hardness and splitting, loss of lubrication, or any conditions that contribute to the change in resistance during the end forming process. Monitoring the process of every production cycle and capturing and logging this data ensures product quality and traceability, and a proven solution for control of the end forming process.
