Forging is as much a skill as it is an art. For more than 6,000 years, forging techniques have evolved with one key goal in mind: to advance what forged components can do. Let’s explore why grain flow is an important part of the forging process and how CanForge utilizes this to ensure reliable and superior quality in our forged products.
At CanForge, we are part of this history of change. Our company was established when three Welland-based companies merged in 1912. In these early days, CanForge produced forgings for the automobile industry, agricultural applications, and infrastructure including bridges and locomotives.
CanForge is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, an accreditation that demonstrates our commitment to our customers. This international certification helps us provide superior products you can depend on for any application.
Forging is as much about using the right materials as it is knowing how to shape them. At CanForge, we use a variety of different grades of steel for our forged components; however, not all steel is the same.
Over the last century, we’ve watched our technology evolve at an unprecedented pace. To meet the demands of these new advancements, our world is shifting to more sustainable sources of energy that are clean, safe and reliable.
Almost everything we depend on in our daily lives is made possible because of the mining industry. For as much as we rely on this industry, mining relies on dependable equipment to keep its operations running efficiently.
At CanForge, we're frequently asked about quotes for casting metal components. There’s a common misconception that casting and forging are similar processes that yield the same results. This assumption can lead to costly errors because there are significant differences in how cast versus forged parts should be used.
CanForge is honoured to be part of a legacy built from fire and metal. The history of forging is as rich in tradition as it is in innovation. A highly skilled craft, forging shapes our world and changes the possibilities of where we can go.
