Near-Net Forging | Quick-Change Tooling | Technology
These are examples of flashless forgings. They allow our customers to chuck on the OD of the part without having to worry about a parting/trim line. Since the part is produced entirely in the bottom die, you don’t have to worry about top die to bottom die mismatch on the OD. Volume control, i.e., the input billet weight, is critical with this type of forging because the die cavity is completely closed. If there is too much material, the tooling breaks. If there isn’t enough, the part doesn’t fill. Most forgers avoid this type of forging because they cannot maintain the process controls necessary.
We have found that the machining savings our customers typically achieve using flashless forgings, more than offset the additional costs associated with this type of manufacturing process.
