The forging process employed by CGC Kymon is superior to conventional metalworking processes with advantages including higher directional strength and predictable structural integrity.

Directional strength

Forging the heated metal under tightly controlled conditions produces predictable and uniform grain size and flow characteristics.  

CGC Kymon’s forging process refines the dendritic structure of the ingot and removes defects or porosity, translating into superior metallurgical and mechanical properties while delivering increased directional strength in the final part.  

Structural strength

CGC Kymon’s process also provides a degree of structural integrity in their forgings unmatched by traditional metalworking processes.  

CGC Kymon’s forging process eliminates internal voids and gas pockets that can weaken metal parts. By dispersing segregation of alloys or non‐metallics, this process ensures superior chemical uniformity.  

Predictable structural integrity, a result of CGC Kymon’s forging process reduces part inspection requirements, simplifies heat treating and machining, and also ensures optimum part performance under field‐load conditions.
