LATEST IN FORGING TECHNOLOGY


Press below was just signed off and accepted by one of our customers in
Mexico. This is a great example of our mid size hot forging presses.

We are seeing a huge increase in request from forging companies for new press lines around the globe.

Many North American forging companies are stepping away
from buying and refurbishing old National, Ajax and Erie presses. When
you weigh the cost of new technology vs. old refurbished presses,
justification makes sense.

Added features like large side windows that accept servo
drive transfer, multi-zone hydraulic ejectors, motorized ram adjustment,
modern safe controls, thermal bearing sensors, massive separate clutch
& brake make total sense for todays forging companies.

Sutherland Presses Hot Forge

HOT HEADING is yet another business sector that shows
positive signs of growth. Sutherland has served the aerospace bolt
heading business dating back to the 1960's and we have learned a lot
from it. Hot heading of super alloy bolts is more of a science when
compared to stamping. Head configuration, soaking temperatures, material
flow are just some of the critical factors.
           

In 2007 Sutherland designed and built the first FLST /
Front Loading Sliding Table 330 ton press. This presses continues to
perform flawlessly in California at one of the largest aerospace bolt
makers in the world.

The 660 ton (below) is another example of our FLST
technology. Our custom FLST bed and sliding table increase production
rate from hit to hit. At the same time provides a much safer working
space for the operators and better ergonomics.
