Complete Forging Solutions

Forge Resources Group’s services go well beyond the forging process – we provide our customers with complete forging solutions. Our in-house post-forge teams offer additional forging services for parts. We also coordinate supporting vendors to finish a part as required.  Our management of these processes enables a shortened total production period and timely delivery of a finished product. 

In-House Post-Forge Solutions

  • Assembly – Fitting together the separate parts of a part, machine, or tool.
  • Shot Blasting – The process of shooting small metal beads against a part at high velocity to remove impurities.
  • Bead Blasting – A process of cleaning a metal part whereby excess metal or scale is removed from a raw forging by means of shooting an abrasive substance, such as sand or glass beads against a part.
  • Vibro Peen Marking – Engraving the metal with your part number, company logo, and more.
  • Heat Treating – The heating and cooling of metals to change their physical and mechanical properties, without letting them change their shape.
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection –  A method for detecting cracks or other imperfections in ferromagnetic materials such as iron and steel by applying magnetic particles upon a piece and measuring the magnetic flow. A discontinuity is indicated by a distortion in the distribution of the magnetic particles.
  • Hardness Testing – Measures the strength of material using various methods.
  • Non-Destructive Testing – Analysis techniques used to evaluate the properties of a material, component, or system without causing damage.

Vendor Specializations

  • Coating – Covering that is applied to the surface of a forging. The purpose of applying the coating may be functional, aesthetic, or both.
  • Destructive Testing – An evaluation technique used to analyze the properties of forged materials or components that verifies the stress resistance limits until damage occurs.
  • Galvanizing – A layering process used to apply a protective coating of zinc to a forging.
  • Heat Treating – The heating and cooling of metals to change their physical and mechanical properties, without letting them change their shape.
  • Machining – A manufacturing process such as abrading, cutting, drilling, forming, grinding, and or shaping of a piece of metal or other material performed by machine tools such as lathes, power saws, and presses.
  • Painting – The practice of applying a coating, pigment, color, or another medium to a solid surface to cover a part of surfaces and to provide improved durability for a forging yield improved longevity in harsh environments.
  • Powder Coating – A process that consists of applying a non-solvent-based coat of paint that is applied in powder form: it does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form as does a liquid paint.
