We can design our own forgings in very low-volume applications and then do more machining, or in a very high-volume application we can design more complex net-shape forgings and do less machining.
They have been also studied a new tool design for cross groove inner race for a constant velocity joint, the flashless forging of an aluminum connecting rod, design of cold forgings and forming sequences, die wear in warm forging extrusion, and examples of DEFORM-3D simulations of a connecting rod, blade coining.
They have the largest ring rolling machine in China - 9,000 mm - a mathed 6000T oil press machine, a 9m car type electric heat treatment furnace and a new build large scale CNC machine production line item, which will improve finishing machine production capacity of large annular forgings.
