Fully integrated manufacturing, quality and delivery processes are designed so as to ensure flexibility in company's supply chain.
The unit specializes in manufacturing closed and open die forgings of carbon, alloy and stainless steel and has the following facilities.Tool and Die Shop
Harihar Forging has a state of the art in-house tool and die manufacturing facility comprising multi-axis high speed milling machines. Die manufacturing is a critical task in any closed die forging operation. Our in-house die-making capability enables us to have better control on quality and the final product.
The entire facility is inter-phased with cutting edge 3D modeling software and this ensures good quality tools and dies on a consistent basis. All dies are checked with a prototype before initiating actual production. The following softwares are employed for die design and CNC programming.
The die shop also consists of a wide variety of in-house dies used for forging generic products used across varied industries, like oil and gas.Billet Processing
The raw material (Billet) comes in standard sizes and fed through the cutting machines to get the desired length.
The shop is equipped with wide range of open die and closed die forging hammers. The pneumatic closed-die hammers range in size from 1 ton to 10 ton and each hammer is paired with a trimming press to facilitate maximum utilization of the capacity.Closed Die Forging
The modern in-house heat treatment facility is completely equipped to handle a wide array of customer requirements. It consists of a mechanized rotary charger that enables the operation of the entire heat treatment facility. This not only minimizes the level of human intervention required, but also enables the operation of the facility in a controlled manner. The finishing shop has shot blast machines.
The Following softwares are employeed for Die Design and CNC Programming
