Forging is the process of hot or cold shaping of metal elements by means of compression and impact forces. The process itself involves the use of compression and impact forces to deform and shape a piece of metal into the desired shape. In this way, stronger and more resistant forgings can be produced than any other metalworking method. Therefore, forgings are almost always used where reliability and safety are crucial, as they are usually components found in cars, tractors, airplanes, ships and others.
The forging facility is equipped with two Lasco hammers KH 200 and KH 250, and presses that accompany the hammers.
An 200 KW induction furnace is used to heat the forgings, which enables efficiency, simple and precise heating control, and the use of energy in the best possible way.
In addition, this method of heating brings the work piece up to the temperature in the shortest possible time and thus reduces the amount of oxidation of the surface layer (scale) which improves the surface treatment of the final product, and increases the customer’s tooling life.
An 200 KW induction furnace is used to heat the forgings, which enables efficiency, simple and precise heating control, and the use of energy in the best possible way. Machines that we have allow the production of all kinds of different closed die steel forging parts for various industries (railways, automotive industry, mining, agriculture, etc.) weights from 0.50 to 6.00 kilograms.
