Impression Die Forging

If you manufacture armored vehicles or industrial drill rigs, your product depends on the strength and durability of forged metal. The advantages afforded by forging revolutionized manufacturing across industries, from construction and mining to agricultural and auto racing.
Trenton Forging has proudly served as an industry pioneer in quality impression die forging for over five decades.

Forged Metal Advantages

Forged components excel in strength and structural integrity compared to that of cast or machined components. They are more attractive economically in subsequent operations due to reduction of material waste and machining time. If your industry requires components with complex configurations, such as automobile wheel spindles or a rock-cutting drill bits, you are in the market for specialized forging services.

Impression Die Forging Process

Trenton’s impression die forging process uses multi-impression progressive dies to impact a piece of heated steel, called a billet. The malleable material ultimately becomes displaced into the impression forming the net shape of the part being produced. In hammer forging the billet may be struck several times per impression. In press forging the billet it normally struck just once per impression. The excess material that is squeezed out along the parting plane of the dies, called the flash, is then trimmed away, leaving a finished forged component.
These cost-saving advantages, combined with the extra durability, can mean better production rates and higher profit for you. When you succeed, we know we’ve succeeded.
