Walform Machines are used to produce high quality hydraulic tube connections by reshaping the tubes. Most of the Walform machines are portable and produce ISO standardized fittings, which enable flow of highly pressurized fluid to form a hydraulic line. Often this is accomplished by manual procedures, but due to risk involved with any error in quality and time consuming process, the Walform machines came into existence, which significantly overcome these challenges. The tubes get reshaped by simply inserting the tube into the configured Walform machine, which in-turn creates a profile ring in the tube itself, further a seal Viton helps in achieving leakage blocking and enables connection of tubes by simply tightening the nut. Further the machines helps significantly in saving costs related to manpower and time and enable businesses to handle larger volumes instead of being restricted by the use of the conventional method. Further being a machined process consistency is the prime trait and human errors are reduced, thus saving significantly on discard products. Further, as only one labor is required to operate the machine in general scenario, it ads significantly on labor costs.
The global Walform machine market is expected to expand with a decent CAGR over the forecast period.
Walform MachineMarket: Drivers & Restraints
The prime factor driving the demand for Walform Machine is the reviving oil and gas industry, the need for transportation of highly pressurized fluids such as Natural gas over long distances. As the global need for energy rises demand for oil and gas is bound to increase, thus fuelling more demand for Walform machines from the oil and gas industry. Furthermore, as marine activities continue to increase with globalization need for pipe fitting and jointing continues to increase.
