Custom Metal Forging

Custom Press Forging Services

Custom Press Forging Services in MilwaukeeIn addition to our hammer forging capabilities, Milwaukee Forge offers steel press forging services, appropriate for a number of applications across many industries. We produce customer specified parts from carbon and alloy steels using closed impression dies, at temperatures of 2100 to 2300 °F. Possible part dimensions up to 18” in length, and up to 13” in diameter, with allowable forging weights of 2 to 100 lbs. We have 1300 ton, 2500 ton, and 4000 ton press capacity, and can hold tight tolerances of ±.0.030”. Our secondary process options include heat treating such as normalizing, annealing, and quenching; machining and cleaning are also available. This process is suited for larger volume production where tighter tolerances are desired.

We conduct a barrage of testing and inspections to ensure the accuracy and quality of our materials and finished products, such as metallurgical, tensile and yield tests, as well as magnetic particle, dimensional, and grain flow analysis inspections. After 100 years of business, we have developed an ever-improving quality assurance process with QC metrics that allow us to maintain high customer satisfaction and a reputation for excellence. We go above and beyond for our customers, offering other value added services including engineering, design, and customer inventory solutions.
