Custom Metal Forging

Custom Hammer Forging Services

Custom Hammer Forging ServicesMilwaukee Forge is proud to offer premium custom hammer forging services, utilizing closed impression dies. This hot forging process forms carbon and alloy steels into customized shapes with 1500 to 4000 lbs of air driven hammer pressure and a forging temperature of 2100°F to 2300°F. Part sizes are possible up to 18” in length, and up to 14” diameter, handling weights of 2 lbs. to 100 lbs. Our forging capabilities can hold tolerances as low as ± .030”.  We provide secondary processes which include machining and cleaning, along with normalizing, quenching, tempering and annealing, as well as other heat treating options. Our engineers work to design customized solutions to fit client needs, manufacturing all dies in-house.

The custom hammer forging process is suited perfectly to lower volume runs. We efficiently handle short to medium volume, with all of our products and processes meeting stringent industry standards. We are registered to ISO/TS 16949. We ensure the quality and integrity of our work with thorough testing including metallurgical, tensile, yield and elongation tests, as well as a full spectrum of in-process and after-process inspections such as grain flow analysis. In addition, rigorous internal QA protocols are carried out by our dedicated Quality Assurance Department. Superior customer service is our culture, and we boast the shortest lead times in the industry along with rush ordering, order flexibility and last minute change accommodation.
