Lebronze alloys is increasing its closed-die forging & heayy stamping capabilities by investing in a new 40,000 kgm forging hammer.
This production line will forge large parts weighing up to approx. 900kg, in special steels, stainless steels, in aluminum, copper-based and nickel-based alloys, as well as titanium.
Within the Custines industrial site, the new hammer will benefit from a fully integrated process. It will be combined with a large set of high-performance facilities, to offer unique capacities in Europe:
The new 40,000 kgm (400 kJ) double acting drop-hammer will complement to the existing forging capabilities in Custines: another hammer of 16,000 kgm, open-die forging, screw press of 2,500 t, Maxi-Press of 2,500 t. The Custines factory is ISO 9001 and EN 9100 certified.
Building on its renowned closed-die and open-die forging expertise, LBA will therefore be able to offer more complex forgings, dovetailing customer needs.
Examples of products addressing the demand of international growing markets:
of copper alloys, aluminium alloys, special steels and superalloys.
