Open Die Forging

Reliable | Comprehensive | Just-In-Time

Open die forging at its Best

Open die forging process consists of heating metal and shaping it by repetitive blows between the ram and the anvil whilst manipulating the metal by hand in order to achieve the desired shape and size.

Open die forging is an old manufacturing process often associated with simpler shaped parts, blanks, rings, spindles and bars, but it can be considered to be the best option in custom-designed metal components. Superior grain flow and refining of the steel’s internal structure optimise the mechanical properties resulting in high strength and long life.              

Our highly skilled blacksmiths ensure that all products are made according to customer specification every time. Our capability is any forging up to 2 ton, limited to 1 meter in diameter.

Bensch provides hand forming, which allows customers to take advantage of low set up cost for those who need smaller quantities of products forged.
