The Benefits of Drop Forging

The drop forging process improves the strength of the metal by aligning the grain along the lines of potential stress, which cannot be achieved through casting, machining or fabrication.

These types of drop forged components are used by our customers in agriculture, transporation, defence, mining, forestry, medical and other industries.

The Drop Forging Process

The Drop Forging Process, also referred to as Closed Die Forging, is a process that manipulates hot metal completely within the wall cavity of two dies. The impression for the forging can be in either die or divided between a top and bottom die, shown in the diagram below.

Drop Forging

As part of our continued expansion, at our Stourbridge manufacturing site, we have acquired a Banning GOA 1250 Drop Hammer.

The hammer is positioned to take full advantage of a Radyne 450KVA induction heater combined with a fully automated hopper feed. This supplies the hammer operator with a constant and controlled supply of billets at optimal forging temperature. The overall process increases production and reduces costs.
