Swaging is a rotary hammering process used to reduce the diameter of tube and wire ends, which are then formed into a customer-defined shape with enhanced mechanical properties. This process does not produce chips or metal loss and can achieve very high deformations without intermediate annealing, producing the net shape in one operation. Common swaging applications include attaching radiopaque marker bands to polymer catheters.

Accellent leverages its strong expertise in swaging with in-house tool manufacturing, process experts and process automation. Accellent can produce a highly capable, cost-effective swaging process for your end shaping needs.
