You’ll need to square and deburr tube / pipe prior to performing beading or flaring end finishing. Tube ends ends may be rough and uneven from cutting. Squaring creates a flat, perpendicular surface on the end and deburring ensures there are no burrs to interfere in joining or disrupt any subsequent forming process. Even if […]
