Why Choose Closed Die Forging?
Closed die forging is an efficient method to produce custom metal parts. This process uses pressure to compress the metal piece to fill an enclosed die impression which is why closed die forging is also known as impression forging.
A medium frequency induction heating furnace is used to heat the steel. Then as the dies press together, the material is forged to fill the impressions, and the excess metal is squeezed out. This is the best method to meet tolerances and results in finished parts that are completely filled and produced with the least amount of flashing.
Closed die forging results in a forged part that is very close to the final configuration of your steel part with very little finishing needed. We provide closed die forgings in a variety of carbon, alloy and stainless steels.
