Forged steel wheel carpentry: how to give life to shapes
Thanks to its experience and professionalism, Mantiero company specializes in forged steel wheels for industrial use. But what exactly is it about? Let’s first find out what forging means.
The forging technique involves the plastic deformation of metal components by means of high temperatures.
The pieces are machined with a forging press that changes the pieces’ shape without breaking them. These are hot forging processes of metal pieces for producing semi-finished products that are later worked and brought to their final size.
Closed-die forging, also known as press stamping, is a variation of traditional forging. This technique involves the use of a double die press that metallurgically modifies the alloy being worked.
