All forging operations are precisely regulated according to the manufacturing process defined by the process planning department. The recommended process and production tools are tailored specifically to your specifications.

Here is what takes place in a standard forging process :

  • Drawing
  • Rough forging
  • Finish forging
  • Hot trimming

Innovation and R&D

FORGINAL medical applies its know-how to innovation and research and development. This commitment has enabled it to develop very high quality results :

  • It currently guarantees a thickness tolerance of +/- 0.1 mm.
  • This is an initial technological step, which amongst other things enables our customers to substantially limit their machining and improve cost-effectiveness, as the price of the raw material is relatively high.
  • What is more, the quality of finish of the parts is among the best on the market as they are inspected dimensionally and visually at every step in their manufacture to ensure an impeccable final product


  • 3 Montbard power hammers (825 kg, 1,000 kg and 1,250 kg)
  • 1 pneumatic hammer and 1 press for drawing
  • 3 fully mapped rotary furnaces with temperature traceability during production
  • 3 presses, 2 of which are for trimming and 1 for bending
  • 1 stainless steel shot-blasting machine and 1 sandblasting machine
