Seven steam hammers, eight hydraulic open die presses, one hydraulic upset press, four ring mills, and one bar planishing mill produce parts that weigh from 5 lbs. to 80,000 lbs. in carbon, alloy, stainless, tool steel, copper, aluminum, nickel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Shapes that are readily forged include bars (round, square, flat or hex), blanks, rings, hubs, stepdown shafts, hollows, and unusual, contoured shapes achieved by torch cutting and other secondary processing. We also feature Tartan Bars® - sound-center, rolled surface round bars - a unique product produced only by Scot Forge.

Secondary in-house processing options include saw cutting, rough machining, deep hole boring, heat treating, contour torch cutting and level III destructive and nondestructive testing.
