Forging

TECT Power is a leader in closed-die forge, specializing in unique and difficult to forge contoured shapes. Our competencies include precision, near-net, hybrid, upset, and extrusion forging processes. TECT Power has more than 30 mechanical and hydraulic presses – ranging in size from 500 to 12,000 tons – capable of forging up to 135 pounds.

Forge Tool Design

TECT Power has the capabilities to design and manufacture forge tools on-site. Experienced design engineers utilize the latest CAD and forging simulation software to create optimum forge configurations required to meet the most challenging requirements. The TECT approach to forge tool design is to minimize the machining envelope and provide the most economical forging possible.

Forge Die Manufacturing

TECT Power builds and modifies its forge dies on-site utilizing high-speed CNC machining workcenters. The capability to link die design to tool build provides TECT with the competitive advantage that reduces lead time and benefits our customers. Quality forge tooling is verified using CMM and laser inspection methods. Having all of these capabilities on-site allows TECT Power to reduce costs, to produce forgings faster, and to maintain outstanding quality in every forged piece.

Pre-Forming

  • Extruding
  • Upsetting

TECT Power utilizes upset and extrusion operations to produce the most cost efficient pre-forming shape. This forging flexibility provides more control over the finished forging.
