Author: Mike Kamnikar : 07/15/10

In order to more fully utilize the capability of its new 5000 ton open die forging press and 150,000 pound mobile manipulator (both commissioned in October 2008), ECF has developed a 77 ton gross weight, big end up, tapered, fluted, nominal 82? diameter forging ingot. This effectively increases ECF’s capability to produce large, rough machined open die forgings by nearly 50% to up to 110,000 pounds shipped weight, depending on the configuration.
