THE EXPERIENCED LEADER
Dedicated to being the PREMIER forging provider for our world-class customers by strengthening long term partnerships through engineered solutions, quality, diversified manufacturing and profitable growth.
The ANVIL is essential to produce a successful forging. Like the anvil, our Core Values set the foundation for our MUTUAL SUCCESS.
Our capabilities run from a wide range of hammers and upsetters to our fully integrated press forging lines. We are able to produce forgings from 5 pounds up to 400 pounds in both long and short runs using carbon, alloy, high temperature and corrosion-resistant alloys. Services include full die design and production as well as on-site heat treating, engineering, certification, both rough and finish machining and many other related services.
We have the resources required to sustain substantial raw material flow and offer a size range of equipment and technical services to meet all of your forging specifications.
THE FORGING ADVANTAGE
From start to finish, our priority is serving our customer with excellence.
Through proper grain flow orientation, the forging process can develop the maximum impact strength and fatigue resistance possible in a metal.
Controlling deformation during the forging process results in improved metallurgical properties. The forging process produces directional alignment (grain flow) for important directional properties of strength, ductility, and resistance to impact and fatigue.
Forged parts are economically produced in a broad range of sizes and shapes.
As is well known, a forging’s structural reliability is excelled by no other metalworking process. There are no internal gas pockets or voids that may cause unexpected failure under conditions of high stress or impact. This means more realistic safety factors based on material that will respond predictably to its environment without costly special processing to correct internal defects.
The consistency of material and dimensions from one forged part to the next, and from separate production lots of forgings produced months or years apart, is extremely high. Forgings are made through a carefully controlled sequence of production steps, in contrast to a random flow of material into the desired shapes. Uniformity in composition and structure, piece to piece, ensures reproducible response to heat treatment, minimum variation in machinability, and consistent property levels of finished parts.
The higher strength-to-weight ratio can be used to reduce section thickness in part design.
Forging components have superior response to all forms of heat treatment. Due to the near absence of structural defects, forgings offer the best opportunity for strong, efficient welds. Due to the lack of internal discontinuities and surface inclusions, forgings provide a dependable machining micro-structure for most metal-cutting processes. Forged parts can be readily fabricated by welding, bolting, or riveting, and are suited for most surface conditioning operations. A forging can also be designed to eliminate multiple assembly components.
Forging’s superior functional advantages of strength, fatigue resistance, reliability, and high quality combine into economic benefits. Uniform dimensional relationships result in consistent machinability and predictable response to heat treatment. This, combined with obvious strength-to-weight ratios, make forgings a top priority of the cost-conscious user.
