Automotive, Recreational Motorsports and Power Generation
Forged components most commonly found in the automotive industry are located at points of shock and stress. BA Forging is known for its closed-die forging of complex, intricate parts including hydraulic fitting components, turbo chargers, AN (AS) fittings, suspension and transmission parts to name a few. Our 3D printing capabilities allow us to create an almost endless selection of parts, and due to our technology, we are able to provide a high quality product at a great value. Historically, aluminum has been a strategic material used by automakers. We regularly forge aluminum and aluminum alloys to create safe, durable, light-weight, strong, cost-effective parts as they are and have been ideal for use in the automobile and recreational motorsports arena.
Like the automotive industry, performance and strength are critical elements in the aerospace industry. The unique environment in space requires that its parts can withstand harsh temperatures, will be light in weight and most importantly will durable. Additionally, since many of the parts that are created in closed-die forgings are connecting parts and parts that are located at areas of stress, it is essential that the right materials and processes are combined to create the strength and flexibility needed in the desired parts. Forged aluminum and aluminum alloys provide a high strength-to-weight ratio and structural reliability along with the added benefits of mechanical stability, dampening, thermal management and reduced weight.
Medical equipment, including parts used in operating rooms and medical facilities, and parts used to stabilize patients, are frequently forged. Closed-die forging is the most practical method used to create these parts due to their intricate and often complex designs. Forging provides a high quality product with the distinct specification required in the medical industry. Aluminum, and aluminum alloys in particular, provide the anti-corrosive element that is crucial to many medical parts.
