What is Forging?

Hot Forging is the process in which metals, ferrous and non ferrous are heated to a desired temperature and formed to shape. 

 

BENEFITS TO FORGING-

  • The forging process helps to promote important desirable properties into components.

  • The manipulation of the direction of grain flow for desired use

  • Forging is often a more economical method of manufacturing in small or large quantities compared to machining or fabrication.

  • No unwanted material loss (excluding surface oxides).

  • For many shapes forging is the only realistic way of manufacture

 

We Service Industries Including-

 

 (including but not limited to)

  • Agricultural, Civil, Construction, Earth-moving/Excavation industries

 (We specialise in rock breaker moil/Gad re pointing/forging, as well as custom crow bars).

  • Welding, fabrication, machining and thermal cutting

 

Key Terms

  • Heat treatment- Processes to alter properties in a material via heating and cooling regimes.

  • machining- The controlled removal of stock

  • Forging- Is the shaping or forming of a metal with no stock removal unless desired (excluding surface oxides) and is usually done hot 

  • Grain flow- Much like timber, metals have a crystalline grain structure.

  • Mechanical and Physical properties- Mechanical properties can be defined as any property in the material that varies and can be measured for example; toughness or hardness where as a physical property cannot be measured and is set, colour, melting point, density, magnetism, etc.
