The superiority of forged parts remains unchallenged.
Unlike castings and screw-machined parts, forging produces a near-net-shape component with optimized grain structure and no porosity, resulting in greater overall strength. Forged parts can be produced with tight tolerances, intricate detail, and exceptional part-to-part-consistency.
With a mix of Automatic and Manual forge presses, we can meet a variety of job sizes and requirements.
The plastic deformation of metals and in particular the hot forging of Brass and Aluminum are well-established processes.
In many cases, they replaced classic foundry processes such as casting, offering improved quality with enhanced component strength while eliminating porosity, an inherent problem associated with casting.
Lofthouse, with our parent company BRAWO, have adopted and continuously improved the forging process for decades and has achieved unrivaled efficiency and quality.
We actively collaborate with the customer from the early stages of the design phase, introducing elements to enable the development of a streamlined and efficient production process, hence an optimized competitive, high-quality product from inception.
Compared to the die casting process, hot forging offers improved mechanical characteristics and surface appearances with superior efficiency and repeatability of the process.
As the forging process reduces porosity, it also ensures less scrap in the successive process of machining and, in general, a better control of the production costs.
