FORMING TECHNOLOGY AT WARMPRESSWERK IN DETAIL

 

Warmpresswerk has various forged products on offer. Reliable and with consistent quality. Here, you can find out more about our production processes and our special skills.

PRODUCTION FACTSN

 

 

THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

  • In order to respond to the requirements of our customers as flexibly as possible, we have a wide-ranging storage facility for primary materials, which is a major plus in terms of shortest possible delivery times. Our storage contains the following steel types:

     

    • Structural steels
    • Q&T steels
    • Case-hardened steels
    • Rust and acid-resistant steels
    • Stainless steels
    • High-grade steels

     

    Would you like a material grade that is not in our inventory? We will create one for you as quickly as possible. Please note as well that we are able to forge steels with special alloys.

  • In the first step, the work preparation staff generates the files and documents necessary for the production sequence. CAD/CAM constructions and 3D visualisations can be created for this purpose.

     

    The appropriate primary material is then taken from storage and cut to the required working weight using billet shears or saws.

     

    The cut material is heated inductively in ovens with a power output of 300-1000kW. The hot working of the cut material is then carried out on eccentric, friction spindle, or coupler spindle presses. Forming takes place with a pressing force of up to 31500kN.

     

    After the forging process, the burr of the forged part is removed. This process can take place immediately after the forming process or at a later point in time. In order to create an optimal surface and remove the last burr and slag residue, all parts are sandblasted. The final inspection or further processing into a semi-finished or finished product then takes place.

  • After the reshaping process itself, further processing of the forging blanks often takes place. We also offer our customers the most economically efficient solution possible in the area of machining. Forged parts can be further processed by us or by an external partner to form ready-to-install finished products.

     

    For the machining of forged parts, we and our partners use only the most modern CNC lathes and milling machines.

     

    This possibility of precision processing enables us to guarantee you maximum quality and size accuracy with the closest tolerances.

  • We have the ability to use material and requirement-specific heat treatment processes. The mechanical properties of the forged parts are thus further improved to reach the highest level of quality.

     

    Heat treatment possibilities include:

    • Tempering
    • Normal annealing
    • BG annealing
    • BY annealing
    • Isothermal annealing
    • GKZ annealing
    • Nitration
    • FP annealing

     

    Heat treatment after the forging process is especially important to ensure optimal prerequisites for the further processing of forged components.

  • Many forged parts are exposed to heavy loads and specific stress in day-to-day use. In order to guarantee maximum quality and reliability, even under these conditions, we can use special surface treatment techniques.

     

    Surface treatment possibilities include:

    • Galvanizing
    • Staining
    • Priming
    • KTL coating
    • Nitration
    • Nitrocarburizing
    • Zinc phosphate coating
    • Glass bead blasting

     

    These techniques have a particularly positive effect on the properties and corrosion protection of forged parts.

HOT WORKING PRODUCT EXAMPLES

 

 

WE FORGE SPECIAL MATERIALS

 

 

  • TYPES OF SPECIAL ALLOYS

    We process the following special alloys:

    Hastelloy, Vacumelt, Inconel, Ni 42, Monel 400, Cronidur 30, Nilo-K, Alloy 600, Ni 99.2, TZM, Ti6Al4V

  • THE SPECIAL ADVANTAGE FOR YOU

    When forging special materials, there is significantly less material usage, unlike conventional manufacturing using an entire slab, which is a strong argument with these extremely cost-intensive materials. Don’t you think?
