Hot forming

Hot forming

industrial forge
for precision forgings
Fast forging presses

The forging of steel parts is carried out in the temperature range from 1100°C – 1250°C. The bar stock is heated inductively to the suitable forging temperature, sheared in the Hatebur and then pressed in four forming stages. In the through-feed process it is possible to carry out controlled cooling from the forging heat.

Machinery: Hatebur

1 machine

up to 2.0 kg
about 104 mm
8000 kN

3 machines

up to 5.0 kg
about 150 mm
12-15000 kN

Special features:
• The AMP70 has an 180 mm ejector stroke for extruded parts
• Extruded parts can also be produced on the AMP50


Wedge Rolling
for producing
gear shafts
Wedge rolling

Compression forming of rotationally symmetrical blanks at 1100°C – 1250°C between counter-rotating moving generating tools, which reduce by rolling on the surface of the workpiece. Preferred process for manufacturing gear shafts with widely diverging geometrical cross-sections.

Special features:
• Forming with undercuts is possible in this process
• Distortion after machining (hardening) is low
• Homogeneous grain flow through whole shaft

Ring Rolling
for producing
seamless ring gears
Ring rolling

The ring roller process is realised as a combination process in the temperature range of 1100°C – 1250°C. A process combination of blocking and radial and axial rolling permits seamless production of complex ring gears for the gear differential.

Machinery: maxi-press, multi-pin radial roller and axial die-forging roller

Special features:
• Rolling blanks can be designed with low allowance as finished part
• Especially good surface quality through rolling process
• Unfinished surfaces = finished surfaces can be taken into account on the product
• Environmentally friendly process thanks to low material use

more precise components
thanks to semi-hot forming
Semi-hot forming

Semi-hot forming is carried out in a temperature range of 750°C – 950°C. Compared to hot forming geometrically more precise components can be produced here and the forming forces can be reduced compared to cold forming.

Special features:
• Drive parts, outer race, are folded in hot on the Schuler press
• Semi-hot rough pressing and cold calibration are possible in combination
• Process permits production close to final contour
• High surface qualities can be realised
