Closed Die Steel Forgings

Closed die steel forgings, commonly called impression-die forgings, are produced through a multi-step process. At Walker Forge, heated steel is placed in a forging press and compressed in a series of tool steel dies that progressively reflect the mirror image of the desired final shape. Forgings are specified in high load and high-stress applications for a number of reasons, including internal consistency (no pockets or voids), and superior mechanical properties due to optimized grain flow and refinement.


We Specialize in Custom Forgings

At Walker Forge, our primary process is closed-die forging, which involves heating special bar quality (SBQ) steel and forging it to shape to meet your custom specifications.
