Tube buckling - An advantage to tube shaping

Abstract

Tube forming is one of the most common manufacturing processes to shape the tubes. Within tube forming operations the general practice is to expand and reduce the tube end cross-section and bend the tube by means of a solid mandrel. Mostly the mandrel is rigid bodies. To reduce the friction between the tube and the tool, tube hydroforming process was evolved in which the fluid was highly pressurized to expand the tube shape to the desired shape. By reducing the friction more uniform thickness could be achieved and thus increase in formability. One of the process within tube end forming process is flaring which is the focus of this paper. In tube flaring process the conical shape rigid tool flares the end of the tube. While flaring the tube, the tube buckles if proper consideration would not have been taken. In this paper, various influencing parameters such as outer diameter to tube thickness ratio, length or the tube, the strength coefficient of the tube and conical angle of the tool were analyzed. It was noted that the most important factor affect the buckling of the tube is its strength coefficient. Considering this parameter the buckling was carried out in a set die and a tube shape was formed. The advantages of this process over similar processes were discussed.
