As first reported by FORGE in May 2014, North American Forgemasters (a 50-50 joint venture of Ellwood Group Inc. and Scot Forge) ordered a 10,000-metric-ton forging press. The company recently took delivery of the press, which will be serviced by a 200-ton rail-bound manipulator and a 100-ton mobile manipulator as well as three additional forging furnaces. It was designed and is being installed by Italy’s Danieli Breda. Here’s the local news report.
