Near net cold forged parts save material and machining time in your operation resulting in over all cost savings.
Dia. Tolerance +/ .25mm or better (+/ -.01″)
Stock allowance .25mm or less! (.01″)
CPK tracking critical dimensions on random parts average = 7.21
Advantages of Cold Forgings include:
Net and Near Net parts – reduce or eliminate machining
Reduce raw material waste – No Flash!
Low Scrap rates -0- PPM rejections
Tight tolerances with forged centers if required.
Excellent surface finish no scale!
Improved physical properties by refining grain structure. Eliminates subsequent heat treating
Average press uptime = 94%
Forged in centers can eliminate end mill and center operations.
Forging Solutions will manage your program from start to finish. From the initial quotation to sample parts and initial production. Once in production, product and delivery consistency are standard procedure. 100% on time delivery and -0- PPM rejects are documented by current customers and available for your review.
These parts were originally hot forgings with 5 degree draft and .060 machining stock, We converted these parts to near net cold forgings with -0- degree draft and .010″ machining stock. The gross weight was reduced significantly, the machining time was improved and the surface condition is preferable, all resulting in lower cost.
The parts below are all current cold forged examples of cost saving parts presently in production.
