A Hybrid Forging Process

Coupling more than 100 years of first-hand blacksmith knowledge that flows through Scot Forge, with our highly educated Forging Development Team of engineers we have discovered how to convert previous fabrications or castings into near-net shape forgings of higher quality.

Thanks to modern technology, close customer collaboration and creative forging techniques, Scot Forge has pioneered "semi-closed die" forgings—a process that combines the advantages of open die forging with the near-net shape of closed die forging.

Simulation & Modeling Reduce Risk, Time & Costs

Collaborating closely with customers, the team runs sophisticated simulation and modeling software to tailor a forging process that optimizes time/cost savings. This software also allows for process validation prior to actual manufacturing, reducing risk and ensuring the success of each project.

Hybrid Forging Compared To Castings & Fabrications

Forging delivers significant economic, manufacturing and quality advantages, such as directional strength, structural strength and impact strength, when compared to alternative metalworking processes.

Directional Strength

By mechanically deforming the heated metal under tightly controlled conditions, forging produces predictable and uniform grain size and flow characteristics. Forging stock is also typically pre-worked to refine the dendritic structure of the ingot and remove porosity. These qualities translate into superior metallurgical and mechanical qualities and deliver increased directional toughness in the final part.

Structural Strength

Forging also provides a degree of structural integrity that is unmatched by other metalworking processes. Forging eliminates internal voids and gas pockets that can weaken metal parts. By dispersing segregation of alloys or non-metallic, forging provides superior chemical uniformity.

Scot Forge Difference

At Scot Forge, we know the importance of getting your parts on-time, as expected. However, for customers new to procuring forgings, ordering a forging that will meet all specifications for end-use applications may be a challenge, which is why finding a trusted supplier and partner is essential. Our employee-owners are here to ensure your project stays on track with our forgings by offering:

Pro Tip - Did you know near-net shapes can save you time and money? Oftentimes, a customer calls to order a disc, which they will later machine down to a more shaped part. By working with our technically trained sales team you can get as close to your finished product shape as possible to optimize your production process.
