The future of forging is being shaped by ever increasing technological advancements and we at Weber Metals, are leading the way.
Alloy development will grant customers greater and more accurate material selection when fitting a material to a specific application. Improved equipment controls will enable forging companies to make more repeatable product with nearer net shapes and higher rates of production.
Simulation will need to increase in accuracy as to optimize the manufacturing processes and predict more characteristics like micro structures and residual stresses.
This exciting wave of technical improvement and development will allow the forging industry to remain cost competitive in the high performance metals market.
