The technological and economic benefits of the so-called precision cold forging process can be found in:
- the near net shape blanks that are obtained, where the finishing stages are limited to making screw threads or tapping for fixing the systems.
- a substantial increase in the characteristics induced by cold working which enables the use of generally low carbon steels. This guarantees both that complex forms of these components can be forged and that they are weldable.
GÉVELOT EXTRUSION’s technology is clearly distinguished by its ability to guarantee the operational features of the component while avoiding costly heat treatments.
Recommended material grades: non-alloy low-carbon steels.
Methods of production:
- Forge: using multistation vertical presses.
- Finishing: machining, drilling, tapping, welding etc.
GÉVELOT EXTRUSION, drawing on more than 40 years of experience in this family of products, is able to offer a level of quality that fulfils the operational requirements of these products.
