Eureka Forge's custom metalwork process

Fabricating the custom pieces is a collaboration among everyone at the shop. Each person specializes in one or more areas of the process. The shop is arranged in a rotation, starting with a raw materials area, then moving to a cutting area, forging, assembly and finishing areas.

"We try to fuse old world techniques with modern technology to be more affordable," says Mike, shop owner. "Today, we use computer-aided drafting software to design a piece. We have a programmable cutting machine that can take the raw materials and cut all the pieces to the right size. We utilize power hammers to expedite the forging process," he explains.

Some interesting facts about the forging process.

Forging is a manufacturing process where metal is pressed, pounded or squeezed under great pressure into high strength parts. These parts are known as forgings. The process is normally (but not always) performed hot by preheating the metal to a desired temperature before it is worked. Forging is different than the casting process since forged parts are never melted and poured as in the casting process. The forging process can create parts that are stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.
