From porosity to material inconsistencies, casting can cause more problems than solutions. But you can solve these problems by working with our employee-owners, we have advanced forging technology and the expertise of our employee-owners to produce forgings for applications that require more complex shapes. Consider converting castings to forgings for stronger, more sound and technically superior components and a better supply-chain solution.
Forging is a viable solution to your problem if you find yourself in any of these situations:
Everyday economic and competitive threats, along with part failures, drive high-strength material users to seek metalworking alternatives.
We consider various factors, including the ability to redesign a product as well as the design requirements for the end-use application. Often, this requires engineers to challenge traditional methods and consider new technological advances.
Forgings usually target a lower total cost when compared to a casting or fabrication. When we evaluate cost factors, such as product life-cycle costs from procurement, lead time and rework, as well as costs of scrap, downtime and further quality issues, the long-term benefits of forgings can far outweigh the short-term cost-savings of castings or fabrications.
A customer’s product had a long history of issues due to poor casting quality. Working with Scot Forge, they were able to transition the casting to a forging which removed all re-work and weld repair from their process and allowed them to provide a better component to their customer. This saved an average of seven (7) processing hours per piece.
Scot Forge collaborated with a customer to convert a 22 piece fabrication into a two (2) piece forging design, saving over 500 hours in welding costs per unit.
Our customer’s casting supplier was not able to meet their production demand, resulting in a potential loss of a significant amount business. Scot Forge was able to provide a solution that met the customer’s demand and delivery requirements at a lower total cost than the casting, saving money and defending business.
The previous process was a casting.
Today the part is forged as a one-piece forging.
The part was previously centrifugally cast.
Today the part is manufactured as a near net forging.
The part was originally a casting.
Today the part is produced by forging.
The knowledge and experience of our engineers, metallurgists and forging experts work in collaboration with your team, helping you to achieve long-term success. Rather than dismissing the idea as impractical or impossible, call on us to help enlighten you and your team of the technical and/or economic merits of any particular conversion project. We will devote as many resources as needed to provide a thorough review and subsequent proposed solution to your casting or fabrication problems.
With the help of Scot Forge and Scot Forge’s creative engineering, Sloan Industries, Inc (Wood Dale, IL) discovered that using forging, rather than casting on magnesium die casting goosenecks yielded better machine performance and part quality.
Scot Forge worked with Deca Industries to create a highly unusual three-spoke forging. The forging replaced a casting used in the mining industry.
