Specialists in Upset Forging

Upset forging, also referred to as hot heading, is a highly efficient metal forging process that enhances the cross-sectional size of a bar, either at one end or along its length. This technique is performed using specialized upsetting machines with closed dies, allowing precise control over the size and shape of the forged product. With multiple stations in the dies, upset forging enables progressive forming as the parts move through each station until the desired shape is achieved.

Common applications of upset forging include bolts, hexagons, squares, liners, mills, fish and countersunk configurations, as well as nuts and rivets. With its versatility and effectiveness, upset forging is a crucial method in the manufacturing of high-quality metal components.
