The issues of improving the quality of products produced by predicting the resulting geometric characteristics of the shape of the pipes to be profiled and their accuracy are considered. An objective mathematical model was created that adequately describes the real process. The computational experiment was performed using software packages that allow implementing the ANSIS and DEFORM finite element method. The dependencies of the studied shape parameters on the outer diameter of the workpiece are established. The presented dependencies and the proposed guidelines for the conduct of the process are of practical use and are useful to developers and consumers of process equipment for predicting the results of profiling

The process of profiling tubes with rollers was considered. The method of solving the problem was considered. The stress-strain state of the metal in this process was determined, the equations of relative deformations was given, the shear strain intensity in cylindrical coordinates are given for the case of a plane homogeneous deformed state. The stress state index was defined
