The Forging Process
HEAVY FORGINGS are made on open hammers ranging from 1 ton to 3 ton piston weight.
All forgings are heated in temperature-controlled furnaces.
Material grades of carbon, low & medium alloy steels of BS/EN, AISI/SAE and ASTM/ASME ranges are used as input material. Selected grades of martensitic & austenitic grades of material are kept in stock.
Band saws are used to cut feedstock material to length in preparation for the forge.
Our advantage with this product lies in our manufacturing expertise accumulated over a period of hundred years in the South Africa Market. This underscored by an unsurpassed history of on time deliveries and competitive pricing.
