Flashless Forging | Near-Net Forging | Technology
At the heart of Viking’s technology is a quick-change tooling system. The advantages of using this methodology include:
• 30 minute changeovers from last good part to first good part. This results in better equipment utilization and increased flexibility to provide just-in-time deliveries to our customers.
• Maintaining nominal dimensions on critical aspects of the forging by using multipiece, inserted die components. As a result, we can achieve 1.67 CpK’s and greater, eliminating the need for the machinist to “chase the forging.”
• Positive interlocks to reduce mismatch and run-out. This allows us to put less stock on the forging. Our forgings typically weigh 5-10% less and require 10% to 40% less machining than our competitor’s forgings.
