Forging Techniques at B.B. Price

  • Open Die Forging: Our open die forging process embraces versatility. It involves shaping metal between multiple dies that don't completely enclose the material, allowing for the creation of a wide range of shapes and sizes.
  • Closed Die Forging: Precision is paramount in closed die forging. The metal is compressed within enclosed dies, resulting in components with tight tolerances, intricate details, and consistent shapes.
  • Upset Forging: Also known as "heading," this method involves compressing the end of a pre-heated metal bar, enhancing its strength, density, and thickness. It's an effective technique for creating robust components.
  • Hand Forging: Elevating craftsmanship to an art form, hand forging at B.B. Price involves the meticulous shaping of metal by skilled artisans. The result is truly unique, custom components that blend functionality with artistry.

Hand forging is the art previously known as blacksmithing, encompassing many of these age-old techniques and skills to bring to life the pieces requested by clients. Interested in learning more? Read about the environmental impact of blacksmithing here.
