Cost Savings

(Potential)

REDUCED DRAFT AND MACHINING STOCK

-Fast die making for quick turn around
Complete in house die facilities for expediting new jobs. Fast samples and production.

-Plastic Forging models available in some specific circumstances
Conceptual models from plastic sometimes offers valuable data while helping determine final parts designs.

Allow us to work with you developing your next forging program. Of course we are also very interested in quoting to your established forging designs and attempt to lower your costs via our efficient in house production programs.

The examples below represent some of our efforts to realize forging cost savings starting with the current forging design. We will use our expertise to help design a part based on your finished part adding a minimum of raw material for clean-up. The result is lower part costs due to less material and significantly less machining is required by our customers.

One example is a part that was previously a near net shaped hot press forging with only. 1 degree draft. Technically a very nice part – in the past! The original part weighed 3.5 pounds, had a minimum of .060″ machine stock and 1 degree draft. SWM reduced this. Parts net forging weight to 2.5 pounds a 33% reduction! The new near net part has less than 010″ machine stock and no draft.

Hot Forging also offers similar opportunities to reduce draft and machining stock…. Forging Solutions will work with the forgers to provide the most efficient part possible. Economically buying heat lots of steel improves customer pricing and provides a raw .material bank for future orders.
