Upset Forging Machines By offering strength with the smallest volume of material, forging application results in less surface area to machine and less weight in the final product.

Upset Forging

Upset Forging Machines of two different sizes are utilized to manufacture parts in a variety of head sizes, O.A.L., and materials. Upset heads on shafts up to 12 ft. long have been produced. Our Hill Acme Upset Forging Machine was installed in 1997.

Induction heating is available on all forging units for improved quality and efficiency. Gas fired forging furnaces are also available, increasing flexibility and capabilities. A rapid infrared superheating furnace allows superior metallurgical properties in the production of aluminum forgings.

Aluminum Hot Forging

Queen City Forging applies rapid Infrared heating to aluminum hot forgings with enhanced physical properties: improved fatigue life, fine grain aluminum metallurgy, and increased hardenability. Queen City Forging uses IR heating technology to reduce energy consumption and lower costs.

Rapid Infrared HeatingRapid Infrared (RI) heating has been proven to reduce the heating times by an order of magnitude, decrease energy consumption by factor of three and produce forgings with enhanced metallurgical and mechanical properties.

This technology is exclusively available at Queen City Forging.
