Rotary Forging

Rotary Forging

Rotary forging is a forging technology which uses a combination of two actions, rotational and axial compression movement, for precise component forming. This technology enables greater use to be made of materials, minimizing (in some cases eliminating) machining and welding operations. Rotary forging requires less force than conventional forming presses, due to a reduction in contact and friction: resulting in smaller presses and simpler tools.

Benefits of rotary forging include shorter cycle times, better mechanical properties from the superior working of the material and high material utilization. All this is done with very cost effective tooling.

Some main advantages of rotary forging, when compared with conventional methods, include: greater dimensional accuracy, better surface finish quality and material hardening and optimized grain structure.

Learn about our rotary forged products for the aftermarket wheel industry, and the aerospace industry.


Yes, that is our specialty.

All rotary forging is done hot in order to facilitate the forming of the material.

Rotary forging is best suited to round parts in various thicknesses and diameters.

Yes, we make all our tooling.

Rotary forging does not produce a surface finish per se. The finish is done through subsequent machining operations.

Yes, we specialize in short lead-times and small production runs.

We forge parts for the automotive, space and aerospace markets.

We preform both in process and first part inspection of the product to ensure it meets both dimensional and quality requirements.    

We provide heat treating, spinning and machining operations post forging.
