Types of Forging We Specialise In
Here at BB Price, we specialise in three types of forging:
- Drop Forging
- Hand Forging
- Upset Forging
Drop forging is the process of heating metal and reshaping it in a shaped die with a heavy machine press.
Hand forging is the simplest form of forging and is often more widely known as blacksmithing. As stated in the name, it is the process of forging metal by hand by skilled and highly trained professionals.
Upset forging is when a heated metal bar is held in a grove and slowly pressured into die. This re-forms the metals shape as required.
Each form of forging done at BB Price is done by a highly trained professional who works to meet the highest standards that customers require.
