 Polished Stainless Steel Forging

"Forged" is the mark of quality in hand tools and hardware compared to castings. Through forging, we produce a wide range of common, everyday corrosion-resistant stainless steel tools such as:

  • Marine application pliers: Adjustable, Needle, Long-nose, Water-pump pliers, etc.
  • Different type of clamps used in corrosion applications:  G clamps, Bar clamps, Meter clamps
  • Various special application measuring gauges
  • High-quality stainless sockets and ratchets
  • All types of oil industry special application wrenches requiring corrosive conditions
  • High-end garden tools and other garden implements
  • Many different types of hand tools used in other corrosive applications and environments
  • Many different types of mining equipment parts

Advantages of Stainless Steel Forgings

Stainless steel forging offers numerous advantages such as a good cosmetic surface finish can be achieved, corrosive resistance and superior strength. Forging is also a smart choice for large volume part runs compared to other manufacturing processes. Forging also produces parts to a near net shape that don’t require a great deal of finishing, which can speed the manufacturing process and shorten lead times significantly. Forging results in near net parts with excellent surface conditions and mechanical properties thanks to internal grain structures that form during the forging process.

Design Assistance

At Deeco Metals, our aim is to help our customers receive the best quality parts at the lowest price. To that end, we carefully examine our customers’ drawings and may suggest alternative manufacturing processes and metals or their alloys. Sometimes permanent mold casting, investment casting or sand casting would produce an acceptable lower cost part.

History of Forging

Forging is a centuries-old process that many manufacturers continue to rely on for one simple reason: it produces a good quality part with a good surface finish. Forging means producing a part by hammering a metal bar or billet into a shaft or part or pressing metal billets or slugs in a two-part die. When forging involves heat, the metal workpiece is heated in an electric or gas-fired furnace. Forging can be done with or without heat.
