Ever wonder if there's a better, less costly way to produce your metal parts?
is! Forging can be an excellent alternative to such processes
as machined bar, torch cut plate, weldments, fabrications,
castings or centrifugal castings — often helping you increase
part strength while providing savings in cost, time, machining
labor, and material. It can also be an ideal solution when
you are searching for high quality, critical performance specifications,
restricted mechanical properties, or special sizes.
The advantages of switching to forging can include:
Our expert metallurgists and sales engineers can work with
you to maximize the performance of your critical parts while
helping you realize production cost efficiencies. These production
efficiencies can involve replacing multi-component weldments
with single- or reduced-component forgings...modifying a specification
to improve process efficiencies...and forging to near net
shape to attain optimum mechanical properties, while realizing
weight and machine time savings.
- Stronger parts than those produced by any other metalworking process, due to forging's continuous directional grain flow
- Near net shape parts with less material waste and cost
- Efficient production methods and component reduction, resulting in reduced turnaround times
- A wide variety of sizes and shapes in an almost unlimited range of grades

- Hubs -
Discover ways to lower material costs and improve
quality using forged hub solutions, versus machining
stock or flame cutting plate.
Cut Parts - Just some of the benefits of torch
cut forging solutions are greater utility of material,
less waste, and reduced cost.
- Hollows -
Get lower cost, consistent quality, and quicker delivery
with forged hollow solutions, versus centrifugal
- Rings -
Reduce material cost, greater versatility, and improved
quality with forged ring solutions, versus flame
cutting a ring from plate.
- Spindles -
You can reduce material waste, decrease machining
time, and reduce freight costs with forged stepdown
solutions, versus machining a solid bar.
