Upset forged parts / Flanged shaft

Upset Forged Parts

Anker Schroeder can upset forge special shapes to your requirements. Dies can be machined to produce a modified shape and give a near match to the required final shape.

Upset forging produces pieces that are stronger than equivalent cast or machined parts. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain deforms to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the grain is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics ideal for use in highly stressed applications.

Flanged shafts

Flange shafts can be formed for blanks for further machining for shafts in engineering and construction applications.

The heated metal blank is formed into a die, which gathers metal, to produce a shape close to the final finished dimensions. This process route maintains the piece integrity and gives excellent grain flow to the formed shape. The use of upset forging to produce a shape close to the required finished shape minimizes waste of the often expensive raw material and produces substantial cost savings in subsequent metal removal and machining operations.

Upset flange shafts can be supplied as forged blanks, or pre-machined by Anker Schroeder for final machining by others.
