swaging tool

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A downhole tool, generally run on slickline, that is used to open collapsed or damaged tubing. Configured with a tapered profile, the swaging tool acts as a circular wedge to force the tubing wall out as it is driven through a collapsed or restricted area. A jar is included in the tool string to provide the impact force necessary to push the swaging tool through the tubing restriction.
