Forge your part closer-to-finish size to save costs


Calling out Specifications

There's more to it than just the specification

As a custom forge shop with experts in each industry, we hardly ever see two forgings that are the same. Just a few checklist items to consider when purchasing a forging are:

  • Do you require heat treatment? 
  • What special testing do you need? 
  • Are you quoting as-forged, rough machined or finish machined? 
  • To what specifications do you need to certify?

These are all great questions and really only scratch the surface of what you may need out of your forging. More often than not, if you're unfamiliar with the buying process or metal forming, this can be overwhelming.  

Heat Treatment Requirements

You may need thermal processing you didn't even know about

Mechanical & Nondestructive Testing

From test blocks to ultrasonic examinations,
here's what you need to know

Quantity Considerations

It's not as simple as you may think! When working with large quantities, it helps to have a dedicated account manager who understands the cadence required to keep your shop or projects running smoothly. Our technically trained team can help you save time and money by appropriately batching work either for material or thermal treatment purposes.
