Swaging Machines - Imagine the Manufacturing Industry Without Them

Updated on January 31, 2012

Swaging Machines are fundamental to the manufacturing industry

What Are Swaging Machines Used For?

Swaging Machines are used for the manufacture and repair of hydraulic hose assemblies.

What Are Hydraulic Hoses?

Hydraulic Hose is the most widely used means of power transmission and is used in power machinery and tools by using liquid fluid power. Hydraulic fluids, which usually contains specially compounded petroleum oils to lubricate and avoid corrosion in the system, are forced under pressure through hydraulic pumps using control valves, tubes and hose assemblies to hydraulic motors and cylinders.

What Are Hydraulic Hoses Used For?

Hydraulic hoses are used in the assembly and repair of hydraulic machinery and fittings. What Are Hydraulic Machines Used For? Hydraulic machines are used in many different types of heavy machinery used in all sorts of industries.

Some examples are:

  • Construction Equipment
  • Cranes
  • Bulldozers
  • Excavators
  • Wheel Trenchers
  • Cement Trucks
  • Rollers Loaders
  • Agriculture Tractors
  • Combine Harvesters
  • Distribution Trucks & Lorries
  • Buses
  • Large Diesel Powered Vehicles

The manufacturing industry is very reliant on hydraulic machines. Most other industries are linked with the manufacturing industry ranging from machines used for mining raw materials through to the vehicles produced in constructing a factory, through to the machines used to recycle useful waste products.

As one example, hydraulic machines are used in the manufacturer of fork lift trucks which are critical for warehouse and distribution centres to lift pallets and other heavy items. They are sometimes attached to the back of lorries or trucks in order to lift and lower the load.

Hydraulic machines are a vital part of most distribution vehicles, without which the manufacturing industry would not be able to function.

Other examples of hydraulic machines we see in everyday life are Cherry Pickers, which are also known as Man Lifts, and are aerial work platforms made up of a platform or bucket at the end of a hydraulic lifting system.

They are used by the service industry to repair things like telephone lines and electrical faults. Fire engines often contain cherry pickers and they are also sometimes used by window cleaners.


The Manufacturing Industry would not function without swaging machines. Swaging machines are used to swage or crimp the hydraulic hose assemblies which are used in these important machines.

Most people have never heard of swaging machines, but without them so many of the machines and processes that are part of are day-to-day lives would not be able to take place.
