Heat treating services as well as normalizing for ease of machinability, Quench and Tempering for added hardness are also offered. We use upset forging process which adds strength to the steel verses machining from solid stock and uses less material than machining from a solid bar. Improved grain flow which is achieved as a result of this process provides strength that can be viewed under a microscope. Depending on your requirements, KDK will make a custom die for your forging needs. Please send us a copy of your drawing and we will be happy to review your part and send a quote to you.
