Forge Industry Expertise
GPMI has a proven 25-year track record of improving forging operations across the country. That’s because we know the forging industry. Our expertise runs deep! We understand day-to-day forging operations and how our tooling is used in your facility. In challenging situations we’ll meet you on-site for consultation and troubleshooting.
We routinely recommend material and design modifications to enhance your tool performance and improve your operation’s efficiency.
Whether it’s high-usage tooling such as punches, dies, funnels, and mandrels, or high-precision tooling such as closed forge impression dies, GPMI has you covered.
Mandrels and Rolls
Forge tooling undergoes some of the most extreme temperatures and compressive forces found in manufacturing. The choice of material, surface finish, hardening techniques, and coatings is critical to the life of your tool. We can help with that. We know what it takes to reduce friction and wear and improve strength and fatigue resistance of your tools.
GPMI offers a variety of options to improve the durability of your forge tooling, including in-house heat treatment, cryogenic treatment, black oxide, and ion-nitriding treatments, as well as partnering with a selection of specialized coating providers to maximize tool durability.
Our proprietary heat treat/cryo/coating combination has proven to significantly reduce our customers’ cost.
GPMI’s stocking programs for high-usage tools offer the benefits of reduced lead times, lower inventory costs, and volume-based pricing. Our customers have realized savings of 25-40% on a per-tool basis, as well as delivery times of only 2-5 days!
