Metal Forging

Forging PressesForging is a metal forming process offered by Connor Corporation that that is characterized by hammering or pressing a hot metal piece inside of 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

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

Secondary Operations

We offer various machining, plating and finishing operations in-house to provide a finished part.
