Forging Capabilities

CFP has truly taken the art of closed-die hot forging and turned it into a precise science. Here at our facility, we have more than 30 forge and trim presses at our disposal, giving us extensive in-house capabilities.

Our team is able to create precision forgings with near-finished dimensions to reduce final machining time and minimize waste. Plus, our forgings have grain structures that are superior to the original billet for enhanced strength and performance. All of this results in better components at a lower overall cost for our customers.

We use D-Form simulation software to experiment with different die designs with the goal of optimizing material flow and metal utilization prior to creating our final production dies. We also have in-house fluid-penetrant testing (FPT) equipment to ensure we’re maintaining the highest standards of quality throughout the manufacturing cycle. In addition, we perform CMM dimensional checks in-house to confirm that all of our forgings are within dimensional tolerances throughout the entire production run.
