Advanced engineering departments, in many different industries, today recognize the many advantages of steel forming processes. Those manufacturing processes are considered to be an effective, advantageous and affordable alternative to traditional steel machining operations.
Starting from billets, from ingots or from pre-shaped bars, the hot and/or cold metal forming technologies enable to obtain near-net shapes, thus allowing to reduce waste of raw material and scrap and to optimize overall costs.
Beside this, the stability and reliability of the steel forming processes permit to guarantee repeatable supply as regard tolerances and properties of the semi-finished shapes. If required, machining operations are often facilitated by the improved metallurgical properties of special steel profiles.
Steel forming technologies allow to manufacture solid or hollow sections with complex geometries.
