This forging process does not only save material, it also enforces the structure of the workpiece.
An upsetting process prior to CNC-lathing or milling is offering the following benefits:
• Cost reduction due to less material usage, especially with expensive material, such as high-alloyed or stainless steel
• Time and energy savings at the subsequent lathing or milling process
• Reduced scrap-rate when machining due to prior expanding or upsetting the workpiece
• Less wear-out of tools and therefore time-savings on tool-changes
Of course we can offer you the complete machining of the upsetted forging piece. By performing in-house heat & surface treatments as well as customized laser marking and labeling, we can provide a finished product.
Classic tool products: wheel spanners, 4-way lug wrenches, tool extension
Products for the machining industry: valve discs/plates, poppet valves, spool take-ups, guide flanges, drive shafts, spindles
Products for the automotive industry: upsetted pipes; the wall thickness of the pipe-end is doubled and through that enforced. The forged area is thereafter strengthened for further machining or welding-on.
