FORGINAL medical uses Montbard board drop hammers: 850 kg, 1,000 kg and 1,250 kg. This type of equipment, unlike screw or hydraulic presses, enables us to offer anatomical prostheses with a thickness tolerance of up to +/- 0.1 mm, a precise and regular finish for parts, in particular on all shoulder prostheses with ridges or teeth, and a much lower raw material usage weight than with other forging technologies (approximately 20% less).
The turntable heaters are all computer controlled, which ensures total consistency in the preparation of each billet before forging. This is particularly critical for titanium parts, where a temperature difference of just a few degrees from the setpoint can cause major defects.
We also offer the special service of forging very small series starting at 25 parts.
This flexibility comes from the choice of not automating certain production facilities; the time it takes to set up automated equipment is justified only in the case of long production runs. As an example, FORGINAL medical has opted for manual drop hammers, for which set-up times are particularly short.
