Mechanical properties of low-carbon St.20 and 07G2MFB steels after rotary swaging (RS) were studied. It was established that an increase in strain ratio and decrease in temperature increase strength but decrease plasticity. The ultimate tensile strength of 867-927 MPa was obtained in both steels after deformation at temperature of 400 °C with a true strain ratio of 2.3 at good ductility of 15-17%.
