Reasons to choose Scot Forge

Dedicated technical expertise

Our technically trained sales staff, backed by our metallurgical engineers and forging experts, will work with you to discover ways to reduce long-term costs and improve lead times. Our industry specialists are ready to assist you in meeting your design challenges and program objectives with clear communications on everything from order status to accurate certification and milestone achievements.

Fast delivery and breakdown services

At Scot Forge, we understand the importance of on time delivery, so we strive to deliver parts on (or before) your delivery date. In critical circumstances, reduced lead times can be offered for breakdown and emergency orders in need of immediate production response.

A vast inventory of materials

We maintain an extensive inventory of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. From vacuum degassed air melt to ESR or VAR cleanliness levels, forgings are supplied using the highest-quality material available. Defense application-specific grades include HY-80, HY-100, N04400, N05500, N06625, 6-4 Titanium, CP Grade 2 Titanium, C63200, C71500 and custom-melt alloys that meet OEM specifications. This ready inventory eliminates many of the delays associated with order processing, allowing for shorter lead times and quick reaction to market changes.

Flexible sizes, shapes and quantities

No matter the grade of material or shape and size of the part, our facilities are designed to support both single-piece and high-volume manufacturing. Whether you need bomb bodies, forgings for submarines, surface warship components, missile tubes or reactor parts, we will expertly certify your order under our accredited Quality Assurance Program.

Value-added options

We offer all downstream value-added processes including saw cutting, heat treating, contour torch cutting, destructive testing, metallurgical analysis, machining and Level III nondestructive testing. Combined with our advanced forging technology and the inherent advantages of the forging process, our capabilities provide a superior value solution.
