Drop hammer forging is the process of using impression dies and a heavy hammer to form and compress metal bars/billets into complex shapes.
We supply a range of unmachined and fully machined forgings to many of our customers. By managing this process in-house and minimising sub-contract machining, we can maintain control over cost and quality and deliver savings to our customers.
Our skilled workforce has been producing quality forgings for over a century, establishing a strong reputation for Brockhouse as a market leader, working with a network of customers globally. From our West Bromwich based facility, we offer a complete service including design, die & tool manufacture, forging, machining and heat treatment for items up to 140kgs in weight.
As experts in this field, we can offer the following:
- Forging capabilities from 0.5KG to 400KG
- Small and medium batch quantities in a variety of metal grades
- Create custom impression dies and store for repeat orders
- Full CAD design and CNC machining support
