Reducing pipe is one of the commonly used pipe fittings in chemical power plants and other projects. It is used for connecting two different pipe diameters. It is also divided into concentric head and eccentric head.

The reducing-diameter forming process of the different-diameter tube is to put a tube blank equal to the diameter of the large end of the different-diameter tube into a forming die, and by pressing along the axial direction of the tube blank, the metal moves along the cavity and shrinks to form. According to the size of the reducer, it can be divided into one press forming or multiple press forming.

Expansion forming is to use a tube blank that is smaller than the diameter of the large end of the reducer, and use an internal die to expand the tube along the inner diameter of the tube. The diameter-expanding process mainly solves the situation that the reducer with large diameter is not easy to be formed by reducing diameter. Sometimes, according to the needs of material and product forming, the methods of expanding diameter and reducing diameter are used together.
