Quality forgings begin in the engineering and product development department once customers submit initial drawings or models of desired products. Using software programs such as Solid Works, AutoCAD and Pro “E”, Trenton Forging engineers enhance these drawings or models and create precise product blueprints.
The machine tool paths required to manufacture the dies are developed and specifications programmed into the 18,000-rpm CNC milling machine tools. Within just eight to ten hours, the forging tooling is complete. Trim and coin tooling are completed on complementary CNC equipment and sample forgings are ready the next day.
To maintain efficiency and rapid turnaround time, collaboration occurs among engineering, production, purchasing, and sales staff throughout the entire design and production process by using our Advanced Product Quality Program (APQP) from MQ1 software application. Up-to-date quality and production data is readily available to everyone via this APQP system.
Trenton Forging’s CNC capability allows the company to produce models of conceptual forgings as samples for prospective customers. In many instances, these models can be produced within 24-hours of initial contact by the customer.
