Videos: Flow Forming

In our last post, we looked at a few videos showing how hammer forging works. In today's post, we will revisit another technique to manufacture rifling that we studied several months ago: flow forming. To refresh your memory, here's a link to that original post describing flow forming.

This is a relatively new technique and therefore there don't appear to be any videos on youtube specifically showing this process being used to make gun barrels. However, there are videos showing how a flow forming machine is used to form tubes, which is close enough for our purposes to understand the principles behind this method.

Happy viewing.
