Forging

Forging is a manufacturing process where metals are pressed, pounded, or squeezed using localized compressive forces into high strength mechanical parts. In order to work metals, the modern forging industry uses heavy duty machines, typically hammers or dies, that need to operate without a hitch in extremely harsh environments. Due to the close cooperation with some of the most significant groups of this sector, RKB has developed a comprehensive portfolio of rolling bearings and services for the specific needs of the forging world.
