Metal Automotive Forgings

Forging PressesForging is a metal forming process offered by Connor Corporation that is characterized by hammering or pressing a hot metal piece inside the forging tool cavity. The tool cavity is created using two hardened tool steel dies, which have been machined into shape and cycled in a forging press.

Understanding the Benefits

Automotive forgings are made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals alike, but most frequently steel, brass, copper, and aluminum alloys. The primary advantage of steel forgings is the production of high strength alloys that cannot be die-cast and is faster than machining.

Secondary Operations

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