Although it customarily produced all wheel hubs as hot forgings, it recently developed a wheel hub by warm forging, which results in a fine-grained structure and particularly advantageous for subsequent induction hardening processes, as the austenitizing process becomes shorter and the martensite that forms is more acicular. Due to the better tolerances of warm forging compared to hot forging, machining allowances may be reduced and machining designed in a more cost-efficient way. Warm forging is available at all eight locations of the Hirschvogel Automotive Group worldwide.</p> Easy-Access Table Blast Machine http://forgingmagazine.com/new-products/easy-access-table-blast-machine <div class="field-deck"> Redesigned unit has a wrap-around door for easy access </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Viking Blast & Wash Systems released the newest design in its industrial line of table blasters, the redesigned 48T.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://forgingmagazine.com/new-products/easy-access-table-blast-machine" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://forgingmagazine.com/new-products/easy-access-table-blast-machine#comments New Products Tue, 22 Apr 2014 01:39:00 +0000 7611 at http://forgingmagazine.com <p>The redesigned unit is equipped with a 15-in., VK Powermax 1500, 20-hp blast wheel.
