Custom Machined Forged Parts
Forgings are produced by subjecting metal billets or blanks to high pressure forces, often with the use of hammers, presses, or other shaping tools. This process rearranges the internal grain structure of the metal, enhancing its strength, durability, and mechanical properties.
Following the forging stage, the forged components are subjected to machining processes, which involve precision cutting, drilling, milling, and other operations to achieve specific dimensions, surface finishes, and tolerances.
Benefits of forging and machining are: Strength and durability, complex geometries, cost efficiency, material selection, precision and quality, waste reduction, customization and fatigue resistance.
Machined Forgings Process
Appropriate metal or alloy is selected
based on the final application’s
The material is heated to a specific
forging temperature depending on
the type of metal
Material is subjected to force using a hammer, press, or other forging equipment. Force applied can be gradual or instantaneous.
After forging, excess material is removed. The forged part undergoes processes like shot blasting or acid cleaning to remove scale and surface impurities.
Forged part may undergo heat treatment
to enhance properties like hardness,
toughness, or grain structure.
The roughly forged part is then
machined to its final dimensions
and tolerances by way of milling,
turning, drilling, or grinding.
Part is inspected using tools and techniques
like calipers, micrometers, ultrasonic testing,
and sometimes CMM
Part undergoes surface finishing
processes and Surface treatments
Machined forgings are where raw strength meets polished product. Metal is heated to a malleable temperature, then pounded and pressed into a final form. The forced shaping, known as forging, imparts strength and resilience to the material.
CNC machining is the next process. The CNC Machines remove excess material with accuracy. From aircraft landing gear that withstands punishing takeoffs and landings to medical implants that require unwavering strength and biocompatibility, machined forgings are the engineering and component behind many critical feats.
Machined forgings offer a unique blend of advantages. A forging’s inherent grain refinement leads to superior strength and fatigue resistance, while machining unlocks the potential for complex shapes and tight tolerances. This makes them a cost effective choice for high performance parts, especially in large production runs.
