Hey Guys,

I am currently working on a personal project for myself, please note I am not an engineer just a person with a big shed with tools. :devil:

I am trying to create a swage machine, which will reduce 20mm x 20mm x 1.6mm RHS so it can fit into another unaltered piece and hold. Video Link

I am quite handy with hydraulics but just would require some direction on how I can manufacture a die to accomplish this, I have attached a crude drawing on what I believe the formed material would look like.

My main question is how would I calculate the size of the reduced material, work out the force required and design a die.

Any direction will be quite helpful :smile:
