Flashless Forging | Quick-Change Tooling | Technology
These forgings graphically show what is meant by near-net. Above are several examples of good conventional forgings that our customers had bought in the past — below are Viking’s near-net versions of the same forgings. Note the smaller draft angles, tighter radii, and reduced material usage.
Our exceptional process controls and utilization of die inserts enable us to produce near-net shaped forgings that consistently meet or exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of machining cost savings. This is accomplished by designing around the machining process to reduce the amount of machine stock required on various surfaces.
We have also been able to reduce the standard industry tolerances on certain key features of our forgings.
