Teknika4 supplies the highest quality aerospace forgings along with the engineering support needed to ensure the best performance and manufacturing quality control checks. Teknika4 has a whole team supporting your project that ensures the manufacturing process is complying with the required standards. Teknika4 employs a highly skilled team of metallurgists and engineers with aerospace industry experience for the most challenging projects. Teknika4 also oversees the production processes, and at every step of production, and provides continuous project plan updates and material sample manufacturing checks with our local NACAP accredited laboratory to ensure full compliance to the material and temper requirements (chemical, mechanical, and hardness).
Tekinika4 is a leader in providing cutting edge and innovative solutions using the state-of-the-art forging technologies and software simulation analysis. Tekinika4 is trusted by Tier I aerospace companies and government R&D organizations to fabricate bespoke forged products. Our manufacturing tracking system ensures full traceability of materials and production lots even long after the product has been shipped.
Forgings are commonly used in spacecraft, helicopters, military and commercial aircraft, and are made from numerous non-ferrous, ferrous, and special alloy metals. Forging produces components that are stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part since the metal is shaped during the forging process, the internal grain deforms continuously to follow the general shape of the part resulting in higher strength characteristics. Forgings are broadly classified as either cold, warm or hot forgings, according to the temperature at which the processing is performed. Iron and steel are almost always hot forged, which prevents the work hardening that would result from cold forging. Alloys such as aluminum and titanium can be hot forged, followed by hardening process. Although there are many different kinds of forging processes available, they can be grouped into three main classes:
- Drawn out: length increases, cross-section decreases
- Upset: length decreases, cross-section increases
- Squeezed in closed compression dies: produces multi-directional flow
