from approved sources. At time of delivery, we verify it against the purchase order, weigh it and confirm the heat code with mill certification. We run a PMI to authenticate alloys, then color code the material. QA reviews and approves all documentation before production.
When material is selected for a job, the billet is brought to the
shop. One of our six computer-operated band saws, capable of cutting up to 26-inch diameter, cuts it to the specified length and weight.
The cut billet is heated in our furnace to its alloy-appropriate temperature, then
using one of our four air-driven hammers. Traceability is maintained by hot stamping all parts.
technology guarantees appropriate temperatures and hold times. All temperature controls are calibrated and certified.
Forgings that require a liquid
are placed in our agitated, chiller-cooled quench tank, which is monitored by a chart recorder.
All parts are
onsite to exact dimensions by expert manual and CNC machinists.
Traceability is maintained throughout the production process. Final
