With the success of Foxtec-Ikhwezi in the aluminium forging of safety critical components, we are expanding into the general engineering field to manufacture a variety of components in different materials. The widespread application of light-weight materials in the field of general engineering is due to their excellent combination of dynamic strength, low density and good corrosion resistance.
The forging technology allows us to adjust the direction of the optimum mechanical properties to the direction of stress in a component and thus fully exploit the properties of the material.
Copper and brass alloys have good processing properties. They are easy to form and, at the same time, have a high strength and resistance to wear, tear and corrosion. They have a wide range of applications, in particular in hydraulics and pneumatics.
