Welding technology treading new paths

As a result of employee proposals and consequential internal developments, S+C (Germany) has supplied a product which normally only can be achieved by big forges with an aggregate power of up to 6000 tons, using its own comparatively “weakâ€? 2000-ton forging press. The product is an insert bush, made of the extremely hard-to-form material W 512, which will be used in the world’s biggest heavy-metal extruding press. This round-forged record tool is 3.2mm long, 620mm in diameter and approximately four tons in weight. The S+C special alloy W 512, which is resistant to very high operating temperatures during pressing, is considered to be hard to form because of its high alloying components (especially titanium).
