Many Industries rely on Queen City Forging Co’s innovative solutions and capabilities to produce custom, small impression die forgings for critical applications.  We serve these industries continuously, providing design assistance, ISO certified quality assurance, flexible inventory options, short lead-times, and dependable delivery.  Industries served include:

Aerospace

The Future of Forging in the Aerospace Industry2

Forgings provide the most reliable process to manufacture critical components that must not fail. Small component parts used in rockets, satellites, aircraft, and drones require the ultimate reliability using materials fully traceable to their origin.  As the Aerospace industry advances, the demands for lighter, stronger, more heat resistant materials has spurred the Forging Industry to meet those challenges with improved methods and technologies.

Common alloys in the aerospace industry include:

  • Aluminum Alloys
  • Copper Alloys
  • Stainless Steel
  • Nickel and Cobalt Superalloys
  • Titanium Alloys
  • Other Specialty Alloys including powders and AM preforms

New alloys developed for the aerospace industry promise to provide more efficient aircraft. With needs for lightweight, durable materials capable of surviving ever higher temperatures, QC Forge provides innovative solutions helping the Aerospace industry reach the next level.

Agriculture

Agricultural equipment relies on forged parts to provide durability and strength to sustain ongoing farm operations. Every farmer and farm operator understands the calamity of unplanned breakdowns. In the most reliable equipment, forged components are used in critical structures and mechanical systems to assure dependable service and long life to reduce operating costs and prevent disaster.

Common forging applications in the agriculture industry include:

  • Sprockets
  • Spacer plates
  • Yokes
  • Chain links
  • Gearbox components
  • Combine fingers
  • Drive Shafts
  • Axel components
  • Spindles
  • Bearing Support Flanges
  • Tie rods
  • Wear bars
  • Grain auger components
  • Universal joints
  • Many engine components

QC Forge has the experience and knowledge to produce critical equipment components to assure continuous operation with long lasting performance.  Supplying machine builders with both new and replacement parts, QC Forge keeps the equipment farmers use in operation so they can feed America.

Commercial Transportation

Diesel engines continue to be an integral part of our economic and transportation infrastructure.  QC Forge has the experience to provide innovative solutions for the Commercial Transportation industry, making parts more reliable, durable, and cost effective than ever before. Both inventing and adopting advances in technology, QC Forge produces compressor wheel and impeller forgings for turbocharger and turbomachinery proven to offer competitive advantages, improving durability and performance over both cast and machined components of similar design. Transportation engineers seeking to improve performance and duty cycles of their equipment, know forgings, the true “wrought product”, offer ultimate reliability.

Construction

construction equipmentQC Forge produces small forged components for construction equipment and off-highway vehicles as well as special tools and components used as construction materials. While construction equipment and farm equipment share many aspects, the requirements of the Construction Industry are often more severe.

Each new building site may offer unique challenges, pushing the limits of equipment capability often operating at the limits of the rated strength and durability. The highest impact toughness and fatigue resistance are delivered with “wrought properties”, characteristics only forgings offer. Forgings assure heavily loaded equipment will get the work done job to job, year over year.

Medical

Forgings continue to be used in implants, tools, instruments, and even hospital furniture and fixtures. They are finding new uses as components in robotic surgeries, now becoming more common place in the healthcare industry. The need for strength, toughness and durability are well understood in implants, as those devices are subjected to extraordinary levels of impact loading and fatigue stresses. Forgings prove to be the reliable standard to provide the best patient care, with new alloys being invented that require powder compacts to be forged for ultimate strength and density. Forgings continue to be essential any place components are required for procedures and service where failure is simply unacceptable.  QC Forge has provided the medical industry with a variety of forgings and components made from forgings to satisfy the demands.

Railway
