Drop Forging for Off-highway Industry

Equipments in off-highway industry need to offer reliable performance, especially in unpredictable and rugged working environments. To achieve high working performance, off-highway equiment manufacturers ask drop forging companies to produce machine parts in good strength. These drop forged parts can effectively improve the working effeciency and serving life.

At CFS Forge, we are a qualified drop forging company in China with over 30 years' forging experience. According to our client's requirements, we can produce and export net, near-net, and finished drop forged products for a wide range of industries, including off-highway. By working closely with our customers in the off-highway industry, we always produce strong and durable drop forgings that meet and even beyond the industry’s standards.

Why Drop Forging?

CFS' drop forging technique put high pressure on metals to produce quality parts for machines working in the off-highway industry. Parts produced from drop forging process offer a number of benefits than parts produced by other production methods, such as:
  • Higher strength. Parts produced by drop forging can achieve the uniform size of the grains, thus to increase the strength-to-weight ratio of parts, make it possible to withstand higher torques.
  • Better toughness and reliability. Drop forged parts are always tougher and more reliable, this kind of manufacturing process allows the parts to last longer and have lower warranty-related costs.
  • Superior heat resistance. Drop forging offers greater structural integrity of the metal parts, can help to improve its retain its metallic characteristics in a wide range of temperatures.
  • Greater flexibility and machinability. Drop forging improves the chemical purity and uniformity of the metal by expelling impurities and eliminating the segregation between alloys. These processes also result in greater structural integrity and flexibility and make the material easier to machine.
  • Lower production costs. After drop forging, we can obtain net shape or near net shape drop forged parts, that require no or less machining operations, which can greatly reduce production costs compared with other manufacturing methods. 

Drop Forged Parts in Off-highway Industry

Due to the advantages of drop forging, parts produced by drop forging process could be found throughout the off-highway industry, particularly in engine and transmission systems. Typical drop forged parts for off-highway industry include:
  • Gears: Gears and gear blanks are available with a variety of teeth sizes for a wide range of mechanical applications.
  • Brackets: These components are suitable for use indoors or outdoors for heavy-duty load-bearing applications.
  • Sprockets: Similar to gears, sprockets are used in power transmission applications across the industry. One common use is in the transmissions of off-highway vehicles and machines.
  • Levers: Levers, lever nuts, and lever handles are extensively used in applications that need handles or involve OFF/ON operations.
  • Spindles: Forged spindles are preferred for off-highway applications since they are more reliable and durable than machined ones.
  • Wheel hubs: As major load-carrying parts of vehicles, forged wheel hubs are preferable for off-highway vehicles due to their superior strength and durability.
