The Siderforgerossi Group ordered a Schuler counterblow hammer for its Busano Canavese production site near Turin. It will be used there to produce large steel and aluminum forgings for the oil and gas, automotive, mining and aerospace industries. It will replace an old counterblow hammer from Bêché, which is now a Schuler brand, that has been in use for more than 50 years. Commissioning of the new system, which weighs 355 tons, is scheduled for later this year.

Lubrication concepts in cold-forging applications differ from those of hot forging. Cold-forming lubrication relies on traditional, complicated phosphate and soap treatments. Newer polymer coatings can replace this complex process, significantly reducing the waste stream and improving lubrication performance.
The University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), part of the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, is opening an office in Sheffield, United Kingdom, to provide local forging and forming houses with easy access to support from the research center located near Glasgow Airport in Scotland. Supported by Sheffield City Council and operating out of an office on the Olympic Legacy Park, the AFRC’s new base will effectively bring the research lab directly to the manufacturers. The office will help South Yorkshire companies tap into leading metallurgy capabilities, numerical and analytical process modeling tools, and some of the most advanced industry-scale forging and forming equipment in the world over 260 miles away in Scotland.
