What is Hammer Forging?
Hammer Forging is the process of striking a pre-heated piece of metal with a large press called a Hammer, applying up to 50,000 lbs of dynamic force. The heated metal is shaped in an impression die to produce a final product. Manufacturers use the hammer forging process to produce a wide range of components and products which need to be strong and durable.
Why is Forging Better Than Casting?
Forged steel products are stronger and more reliable than products produced by other processes, like casting, stamping, or welding. The forging process produces material with superior strength by controlling the grain flow of the metal and eliminating voids and seams.
