Impact Machining carries many advantages. Amongst the many advantages cost reduction is the greatest. A higher quality product is made at a fraction of the price from alternative processes, i.e. machining from solid bar stock.
HOW YOU CAN SAVE
REPLACEMENT OF ASSEMBLIES WITH ONE PIECE COMPONENTS: Impact machining offers the opportunity to use a single part instead of previous assembly or sub-assembly, reducing or eliminating the necessity of producing extra parts and assembling them. For example, pictured below is a housing previously made by welding a machined top flange and a bottom bushing to a deep drawn cup (left). On the right is virtually the same part, only made as one piece through impact extrusion. Combining of these components results in an added strength by eliminating a local stress created by fasteners or welding.
LEFT SIDE: METAL PRESSING- Flanges on top and bush at the bottom turned separately and welded. Right Side: Cold Extruded in one piece.
