Forging of Autoparts
When metal is hot, it is in a soft and pliable condition allowing it to be easily formed under pressure without breaking. This process is called forging.
Metal is strongest in the direction of its grain flow. Machining cuts through the grain, thereby weakening the metal. Forging causes the grain to flow in the shape of the part. Therefore, forgings are stronger than machined parts. Also, since the shape of the part is created by pressure, not cutting, much less metal is lost in the process. This means that parts with complex shapes can be formed and mass produced by forging more economically than by machining.
The process of forgings starts from designing facility through both, Computers and Manually facilitates us preparing the best modeling for part and tooling development.
An In-house Die-shop equips us for fabricating all types of dies and tooling, using lathes and other tools. Dies are produced using Wooden Pattern Graphite Electrode. Full sets of templates are fitted on sinking of the die for rigid dimensional checks and inspection.
Materials are procured from reputable approved supplier companies in various forms of materials, in various Sizes as per the requirement of the final product. Raw Materials inward process automatically checks for the quality of the Material. Materials of different types are stored separately with color codes marked, to Facilitate full traceability and avoid material mix-ups.
Most cutting of raw material is done with the help of Shearing Machines and Band-Saw Machines. Color codes are marked on Cut pieces and are stacked separately with a banner fixed over each stack so as to identify the materials grade and also the final product to which they are meant.
Cut pieces are heated in metal gathering machines Temperature Controller. The pieces are carried to the forging hammers.
Depending upon the specific requirements of the end use of forged components, forgings undergo further processes such as Heat Treatment, Shot Blasting, Magnaflux crack detection. etc. We have In-House facilities for these processes.
We have in house facility for Machining, Drilling, Threading, Capping and Grinding etc.
