Forging is a process in which the metal is heated and then transformed into the desired shape. There are many benefits of forging, one being that the products can withstand various mechanical stresses. More complex structures can be created. There is also less risk of faults and cracks, because there are no pores. A homogeneous, dense workpiece is extremely important for us, as many of the Group’s articles handle pressurised liquids and gases. We hot-press and machine components in aluminium, copper and brass. We have three press lines for hot forging, which takes the form of each press line heating a cut material object. The object is then is forged and cooled down on a cooling table. It is then cut clear, leaving a finished workpiece. All of these steps are fully automated. We can then drill, mill or turn to complete the finished product. We have traditional presses, which are operated by robots or controlled manually. Our latest investment is a screw press manufactured by Siempelkamp, with a press force of 1,250 tonnes, which makes us unique in Northern Europe.
