Our forging capabilities span materials from carbon and alloy steel to superalloys, titanium and other specialty materials. We employ a wide range of forging technologies, including isothermal and hot-die forging for advanced aerospace materials and components. And ATI provides a full range of post-forging inspection, machining and finishing services with the certified quality you need to meet demanding application requirements.
A world leader in isothermal forging technologies, ATI operates some of world’s largest isothermal presses in Cudahy, Wisconsin which produce technologically advanced forgings for hot-section jet engine components. Our patented SuperCooler™ technology enables us to produce highly sophisticated components that have differing mechanical properties in different parts of the same piece for greater resistance to fatigue and temperature effects. Our isothermal presses produce titanium and nickel base alloy forgings up to 45” (1155mm) in diameter and weigh up to 2,000lbs (900 kg)
Our hot-die forging capability, based in Irvine, California, produces near-net forgings in a wide range of aerospace-grade materials. Our core competence is in aero-engine components for advanced systems. A full-service operation, ATI provides engineering support, die manufacturing, heat treating, machining, and ultrasonic testing services. We have the technology, equipment and experienced personnel to forge shafts, spools, seals, disks, impellers, turbine wheels and other aerospace parts in a wide range of sizes, shapes and materials.
ATI's forging centers in Cudahy, Wisconsin and Stalowa Wola, Poland have the technology, equipment and expertise to forge parts in a range of materials and in some of the largest sizes and most complex shapes currently being designed.
Our European aerospace/industrial forging capability, based in Stalowa Wola, Poland, has become one of Central Europe’s largest suppliers of forgings. This location operates 11 press lines and 11 hammer lines with an overall annual production capacity of more than 33,000 tons in carbon steel, high-strength steel and titanium.
In addition to extensive aerospace and general industrial forging capabilities, ATI provides heat treating, rough machining and nondestructive testing services for customers of its forged products. Customers around the world rely on ATI for the durable, highly engineered parts they need for a wide range of demanding industrial applications.
ATI has three US based facilities and one European facility which have the equipment and technical expertise to forge steel parts in an extensive range of weights, sizes, configurations and materials.
Our specialty steel forging operations use three separate forging methods and full design capabilities to provide part geometry diversity. These methods and capabilities, combined with rapid-change tool handling methods, provide the flexibility to produce any volume of custom engineered forged products. Additional services available to customers are certified heat treating, part cleaning, machining, corrosion treating, magnetic particle inspection, spectrographic analysis, laboratory analysis, and other post-forging operations to meet specific customer requirements.
Our steel forging capability in Portland, Indiana and Lebanon, Kentucky produce forgings of high quality carbon and alloy steel. These operations provide a full range of forging capabilities and related services producing forgings that range from 1 to 200 pounds (.45 to 91kg). Our 26 production units (upsetters and hammers) provide flexibility to produce metallurgically sound forgings on time for specific customer needs.
Our East Hartford, Connecticut facility performs precision machining operations to supply large and small components for jet engine applications, and parts from hubs to hinges for all types of rotor wing aircraft. In addition, we supply aerospace-quality subassembly services for forgings, primarily to helicopter and defense OEMs.
