Unlike other methods of metal forming, forging never compromises the integrity of the final product. The forging process retains the intrinsic strength in the grain of the original piece of metal. Our forging process takes specific advantage of the grain flow, directing it to the most highly stressed points.

Forging offers these distinct advantages:

  • Inherent high strength and structural integrity
  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Minimal metal waste saves material
  • No hidden flaws
  • Overall weight reduction without loss of strength
  • Affordable method of forming difficult materials
  • Cost-efficient production of complex shapes
  • Combination parts can be forged in one step
