Upset Forging in the UKUpset Forging is just one of many forging processes available from Brooks Forgings Ltd.
Our forge located in Stourbridge UK produces forged components on a daily basis. If you are looking for upset forged components please contact us today with your requirements.
Typical examples of upset forged components are eyebolts, hex /square head bolts, torsion bars, anti-roll bars and connecting rods (clevises).
We have vertical crank, hydraulic and screw presses capable of forging from 10mm diameter up to 100mm diameter
and horizontal machines with a working capacity from 6mm diameter up to 80mm diameter x 6m long.
Upset forging material specifications range from mild, carbon, alloy, though to stainless steel grades.
· Inherent strength retained by containing metal grain flow through upset forging.
· No stress areas created where material size needs to be reduced, which would occur if bar turned.
· No brittleness or porosity concerns with forgings (sometimes prevalent in the casting process)
· No concern of fractures at weld joints (as could occur on fabrications)
