Reliable Automotive Forgings

Forging Presses

Rely on Connor Corporation for all of your forging needs. Forging is a metal forming process characterized by hammering or pressing a hot metal piece inside a specialized tool cavity. This cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies, which have been machined into shape and cycled in a powerful forging press.

Our experience allows us to streamline and perfect this process, delivering durable results that empower your most vital applications. When reliability is the key to your success, count on us for automotive forgings, or forgings for other applications. With product options at different chemical compositions and mechanical performance capabilities, we can take on a wide range of projects and create parts that you can trust.

Understanding the Benefits

Automotive forgings frequently feature ferrous and non-ferrous metals alike but most frequently utilize steel, brass, copper, and aluminum alloys. Using steel forgings results in the production of high strength alloys that cannot be die-cast, making it both effective for numerous applications and faster than machining.

We offer aluminum, brass, and steel forgings based on your project’s needs. With every part we craft, we strive to maximize resilience and ensure that you never have to worry about compromised function. That way, you can focus on the requirements of the job — not the quality of the parts you use.

Secondary Operations

Along with our aluminum forgings, steel forgings, and brass forgings, we offer various machining, plating, and finishing operations in-house to provide a finished part.
