Our Closed Die Forging process

Closed die forging is an advanced method of drop forging involves shaping metal within the confines of specially designed dies, ensuring your product meets detailed specifications with ease. The process starts by placing raw metal in a die attached to an anvil. A hammer die then strikes the work-piece, dispersing the metal to fill any cavity gaps and reshape it precisely.

This technique may require multiple forging dies before the component is completed, resulting in parts with precise dimensions, intricate details, and superior mechanical properties.
