A Leader in Australian Forging Companies

Since 1918 CGC Kymon has been defining quality and customer service in the Australian Open Die Forging industry. Today, CGC Kymon is one of the leading forging companies in Australia, operating in two modern open die facilities in Australia for the local and international markets.


Open Die Forgings with Greater Strength

  • Fewer defects, made to order
  • Economical and reliable
  • Only the open die forging process can yield a grain structure oriented to the part shape, resulting in optimum toughness, ductility, impact strength and fatigue strength
  • Produced from the cleanest steels, thereby minimising non metallic inclusions and retained gases which can embrittle castings and plate
  • Greater uniform structure and finer grain size than castings or plate resulting in more predictable and uniform mechanical properties as well as higher yield strengths for any given hardness level
  • Conversely, localised soft spots in castings and plate can develop into cracks and laminations respectively
  • Often the only metalworking process available with certain grades in desired sizes
  • No pattern or die costs
  • Forgings are produced close to final shape thereby minimising material waste
  • As material costs increase, forgings become a cost effective alternative to the wasteful process of flame cutting
  • When reliability is critical, design engineers will often specify forgings
