Hot Forming

Stretching the Limits with Sophisticated Hot Forming Technologies

Hot forming is an advanced metal manufacturing process that requires rare expertise and specialized tooling and equipment. It involves deforming metal parts at temperatures above their recrystallization temperature shaping

Unique Capabilities at Carmel Metal

Carmel Metal is committed to delivering high-quality hot-formed products that meet the specific needs of our clients, in adherence to the strictest industry standards such as AS9100, a quality management system (QMS) standard developed specifically for the aerospace industry. We have state-of-the-art equipment and highly skilled professionals who specialize in small- and large-scale serial manufacturing.
We operate two specialized furnaces with a heating capacity of up to 600°C and two hot forming presses with a 150-to-800 ton pressing capacity and a maximum product size of 2200 mm. Our capabilities also extend to Hot Sizing, an advanced hot forming process used to reduce the diameter or shape of metal tubes or wires. We specialize in Super Plastic Forming, a process used to produce complex and lightweight components with high strength-to-weight ratios, ideal for the aerospace, automotive, and medical industries.

Special Uses and Benefits

Hot forming enables the production of strong, complex shapes with fine details that may not be possible with other manufacturing processes. It is the preferred process for numerous applications in aerospace, defense, medical, automotive, air conditioning, and agriculture. Typically used with titanium, magnesium, and aluminum, hot forming brings many desirable properties, including high strength-to-weight ratios and corrosion resistance. Additionally, the use of high temperatures reduces the risk of cracking and defects, resulting in more durable products. At Carmel Metal, we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality products that meet our clients’ specific requirements.
