The thousands of in-stock tools at our Franklin Park hammer shop and press plants capabilities provide the ability for us to produce both simple and complex hubs as near-net forgings. During the forging process, material fills the tool or tools and directional grain flow is produced, giving the hub improved strength, ductility, and resistance to impact and fatigue.
Sizes range from 3" to 144" diameter. With no minimums for stocking grades, you can order single-piece or large quantities of products varying from a few pounds to 90,000 lbs.
Our practices reduce stock, improve mechanical capabilities and limit additional machining, making it ideal for prototypes and short-run requirements. Working with our technically trained sales staff, we are oftentimes able to provide a more cost-effective solution than a machined bar, weldments, or closed die forgings, all while staying within your specific time constraints.
When purchasing hubs and spindles, product integrity is critical often making or breaking a part in the field. Machined castings or hot-rolled machined bars tend to have poor structural integrity or inclusions that lead to problems with cracking and part failure. As shown in the cases below, forging has proven to be a successful solution to these problems.
The previous process involved casting, followed by intricate machining.
Today the part is made as a forging, providing outstanding strength, soundness and structural integrity properties.
The former process involved sawing and machining a hot-rolled bar to shape.
Today, a customized forging process provided the solution.
Previously, the pinion was manufactured from a hot-rolled bar, machined to size.
Today the machined hot rolled-bar has been replaced by a forged spindle using 37% less material.
