IMS Forgings GmbH
Open die forging
Open-die forging of forgings belongs to the massive forming group and is mainly used for project-based parts with a single part drawing. In simple terms, an open die forging is “tailor made” for the application. Open-die forging of forgings is not economical for mass production. Drop forging is the preferred process.
Open-die forging significantly improves the mechanical properties of the steel, such as yield strength. The weight range of parts produced by open die forging is from 100 kg to 350 tonnes.
Our network of suppliers can produce coil weights up to 4500 kg and coil heights up to 860 mm with a maximum diameter of 4500 mm.
