ECONOMIC ADVANTAGES

1. Parts upsetted allow large material savings, in comparison to machining from solid; 2. Always compared to machining from solid, upsetting allows savings in both time and tools usage; 3. Shape unification is possible, in order to get production optimizations, even for small batches and pre-production samples; 4. Improvement of the production times due to the modularity of the moulding equipments, which can be used on the different upsetting lines.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

1. Better results of heat treatment compared to parts machined from solid: the process takes places after the forming of the raw part, in this way the hardness values, for example, will be more homogeneous; 2. Production of integral parts, in substitution of parts previously welded or assembled; 3. Parts with a stronger structure, even if made of the same material: metallic fibers are not “cut off”, but compressed and oriented along the part shape.

QUALITATIVE ADVANTAGES

1. Flexibility in changing the upsetting technology depending on suitable machining allowances of the part referring to the drawing of the end product; 2. Maximal helpfulness in giving qualitative advice about the best raw material to use, thanks to the direct collaboration with the main Italian steel mills and to our pluriannual experience acquired.
