BRAWO USA Aluminum Forgings >> Forging
Dating back to 4000BC, forging still delivers benefits that cannot be duplicated in other processes, while yielding stronger parts for long-term applications and products as modern as tomorrow.
At UNIFOR, the process begins by using billets of preferred aluminum alloys by heating and maintaining them at a precisely maintained temperature. Preheating the die, and monitoring in real-time the gas induction furnace as the billet moves to the forge, ensures consistency and uniformity.
Heat treating, often required to add further strength, is achieved by moving the hot forged part to a heat treating/aging chamber before slowly cooling down to ambient temperatures, with every step controlled by robotic technologies
Sand Blasting & Cleaning options from additional heat treatment to trimming, machining, polishing, powder coating, and plating are available according to customer requirements.
