Independent Manufacturer of Aluminum Parts for Leading OEMs
using Semi-Solid Metal (SSM) processing technology
Today Vforge serves the aerospace, medical, transportation, recreation and industrial markets of North America, Asia and Europe by supplying unique parts from 5 g to 5 lbs, from 150 to 150,000 pieces per year.
World-class OEMs have sourced with Vforge since 1999 to lower total manufacturing cost by rethinking traditional forgings, extrusions, or machined parts, or by replacing castings prone to porosity/failure.
We start with premium grade ingot. Each material heat is alloyed, filtered, degassed, electromagnetically stirred and continuously cast into bar to achieve the equiaxed grain structure that enables viscous-forging.
Billets are pre-heated to induce a thixotropic condition, then injected turbulence-free into heated steel dies and held at high consolidation pressure to produce dense, complex, heat-treatable parts.
Vforge parts deliver:
Near-net shape cost advantages
Fine, cosmetic surface quality
Peak mechanical properties
