Hot Forging & Precision Machining

Chartway (Asia) Manufacturing Capacity

Established in January 2002, Chartway (Asia) has grown to provide leading OEM’s throughout Europe with the highest standards in Hot Forged and Precision Machined Components.

Hot Forging

Our Hot Forging workshop is equipped with 32 Sets of Hot Forging Machines ranging from 25 tonnes to 400 tonnes, producing forged blanks up to a maximum of 10 kilos. This modern forging process guarantees a very precise, high integrity forging with excellent strength.

Using our CAD system and technical expertise we can ensure the most cost effective design of the molding die so reducing the material & machining cost. This means we are able to provide our clients high integrity components at a very competitive price. The cost of the die is not charged until samples have been supplied and complete customer satisfaction has been achieved.

Hot Forging Process

Hot Forging or Hot Stamping is a production process which “hammers” metal between two dies to form the desired shape. Half of the die is attached to the “hammer” (upper section) and the lower half of the die is attached to the “anvil” (lower section). A metal “blank” is placed in the lower half of the die and then “struck” with the upper die. The force of the strike forces the metal to flow in all directions, filling the die cavity and giving the parts a very strong grain structure. Excess metal is squeezed out between the die faces, and is called flash or flashing. After the forging operation, the flash is cut off in another press with a trimming die.

Precision Turning Machines

Following the Hot Forging process the parts are allowed to cool, the ‘flash’ is then removed and they are transferred to our machine shop for finishing to the customers drawing. 

Our machine shop is equipped with a total of 120 Semi-Automatic Lathes, all operated by our highly skilled workforce of precision engineers.
These high precision machines are capable of handling components from 3mm to 100mm in diameter.
