Forming of special materials
Special alloys, super alloys, refractory materials, titanium and many other grades share one thing: they have their own special forming requirements. Many of them can be formed particularly beneficially with our technology.
- High degrees of forming due to processing from all sides
- Efficient forming of complex geometries or production of optimized material distribution for the subsequent process
- High process reliability
What are you able to produce on our machines?
For precise production
Forging of refractory metals is a special challenge that we gladly step up to. Inline re-heating plays an important role in this.
Forging of co-basis, Ti alloy or stainless material grade blanks in a hip joint pre-form.
One example for special geometrical application is the near-net shape forging of turbine blades. They often make it possible to skip close-die forging.
Tie-rods and struts
Tie-rods and struts for the aircraft industry are often made of aluminum or titanium alloys. A monoblock version – as is made by GFM as well – ensures the longest service life.
Forging inner geometries
We do multi-material compound forging of complex inner geometries like for mud motor stators.
