Hot Forging

The heart of the Euro Stampaggi Group for over 40 years

The hot moulding of metals is a process of plastic deformation that originates from the ancient art of modelling metals. In modern practice, the deformation of the metal is carried out by means of steel moulds, which have the negative shape of the object to be obtained while the metal is heated by means of gas furnaces.

Hot forging guarantees particular mechanical characteristics such as greater resistance to strain, wear and stress. It also confers superior aesthetic qualities to the surface of the item, which is more compact, solid and less porous compared to the same materials worked with other processes.

Hot forging is done by deforming a heated metal rod and, compared to other processes such as injection casting, in order to obtain complex, highly detailed shapes requires later phases of surface finishing. In fact, the parts obtained in this way can undergo subsequent working which allows the final piece of the process to be obtained which, despite still being a semi-finished item, has high quality mechanical and aesthetics characteristics.

Hot forging has, for over 40 years, been the central core of the Euro Stampaggi Group (the first manually-operated friction screw press, a model from the 1930s, was installed in 1980). Today, the Group has thirty production lines (furnace and friction screw presses) which are all completely automated and able to create parts of the tiniest dimensions (a gramme) up to parts with dimensions of 300 millimetres. High flexibility, enabled with an appropriate production facility, allows us to meet the market’s growing demands in terms of quality and delivery times.
