CONTINUOUS DESIGN OPTIMIZATION FOR SUPERIOR SOLUTIONS
SIFCO Forged Components merges design best practices with continuous improvement to ensure customer satisfaction throughout the life of a program.
Our knowledgeable engineering team engages today’s most innovative technology for tooling and process design and optimization:
- Pro-E / CREO and Catia V.5
- Integrated model-based definition
- DEFORM Forging Simulation (2-D and 3-D)
- Portable CMM and Laser Scan inspection for dies and forgings
QAF is not just a build to print shop. Our team of Engineers and Forging personnel, using the tools listed above, are also able to produce forging models from machined part configurations so that customers have another option when sourcing their machined parts requirements.
Our new part introduction process utilizes a systematic phased approach that provides continual feedback on achievability and critical functions of all forgings. Our proven success stems from SIFCO Forged Component’s integrated value stream, allowing customers and vendors to create the best possible methods for producing a superior component.
SIFCO Forged Component understands the challenges our customers face. From improving performance of a forged component to creating an efficiently-priced, near-net forged solution, we have the expertise and in-house capability to fully optimize designs and deliver the highest value forgings in the market today.
