Benefits of the Industrial Metal Forging Process

Finished metal component parts are used in various
industries to produce:

  • Lifting and rigging hardware
  • Hinges and pivot blocks
  • Radial impellers and compressor wheels
  • Axial compressor and fan blades
  • Automotive suspension, steering and drive train links
  • Pistons, piston rods, cam shafts and crankshafts
  • High pressure valve bodies and fittings
  • Aircraft landing gear, wing struts and control surface supports
  • Gear blanks, wheels and bearing races
  • Hand tools and surgical instruments
  • Electromechanical relay and contactor components

Metal forging can include:

  • High Temperature Alloys, Cobalt based Alloys, Nickel based Alloys and Super Alloys
  • Carbon, Alloy and Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum and Magnesium Alloys
  • Silicon Iron and Core Iron
  • Brass and Copper
  • Titanium
  • Virtually any metal – nearly 80% of the elements of the periodic table!

And like any other manufactured metal component, the parts can be finished to fit a multitude of precision functions.  Finishing of forging metal component parts for various industries may include:
