For parts that have complex shapes, forging offers many benefits.
It minimizes waste and reduces machining costs.
We have built up impressive expertise and production capacity at our subsidiary, Hörle Automatic (Ningbo) Co. Ltd., in Ningbo, China.
We produce forgings weighing from 0.5 to 10 kg in volumes of 1,000 parts per year and upwards.
Casting is a useful process where complex shapes with cavities are required, or where forging is not possible. At Hörle Automatic (Ningbo) we take total responsibility for purchasing castings, which we then machine in our own factory.We use lost-wax casting, which offers short project times and very low tooling costs. For larger volumes we use sand casting.
