Hot Forged Product Applications
Our outsourcing hot forging offshore partners can create custom parts that match your design specifications. VMT can deliver hot forgings in a wide variety of sizes and metal options. The strength and durability of hot forged parts makes them ideal for more rugged applications, some of which include:
- Automotive manufacturing
- Tools and hardware
- Construction equipment
What are the differences between hot and cold forging?
The cold forging manufacturing process increases the strength of a metal through strain hardening at a room temperature. On the contrary the hot forging manufacturing process keeps materials from strain hardening at high temperature, which results in optimum yield strength, low hardness and high ductility.
Finally, a manufacturer would choose one process over the other because of economic and not quality reasons. The decision is based on the required functions of the desired component, the industry and if it’s a mass production or a low volume of customized parts.
VMT provides cold, warm and hot forging or combination of different processes to address various customer demands, both performed in excellent conditions with state-of-the-art machinery for perfect results. We work close with our customers to understand their specific needs and find the best possible solution.
Why Choose VMT for HOT Forging?
Need to make copies of your metal product?Hot forging is your solution. Here at VMT, we lead the industry in efficient, high-quality forging services scalable for any organization. Here are just a few reasons why thousands of businesses worldwide choose us for forging.
The Hot Forging Manufacturing Process
The hot forging manufacturing process is performed at extreme high temperature (up to 1150 °C for steel, 360 to 520 °C for al-alloys, 700 to 800 °C for cu-alloys). This temperature is necessary in order to avoid strain hardening of the metal during deformation. Stamping is the most widespread hot forging manufacturing process, where the material is squeezed in a press, between a tool and a die surface.
