Ever wonder how fasteners are made? Nuts, bolts and screws are commodity items that use either forming or forging to generate the net shape of the component. Little to no material is wasted using either process, keeping cost to a minimum.
DisCom specializes in generating goods produced via forming or forging. 1200-ton pressures shape billet material into the desired shape. This can be done with or without the presence of heat, depending on the part complexity or material hardness. Parts surfaces are worked, meaning that the finished good has added strength and toughness.
If you need assistance in determining if your part is a candidate for forming or forging, provide DisCom with a print/CAD model and we will assess the manufacturing feasibility for you. For cost savings initiatives, DisCom can offer suggestions that enable either of the following manufacturing processes
|Brass, Bronze, Copper|
|A286 Stainless Steel|
