The Delavan location, established in 1995, is home to four forging lines, two 1000 ton hydraulic coining presses, wheelabrator, steel shear, steel saw, tool room, indoor die storage area and large indoor steel storage area.
The Delavan plant, located along Interstate 43 in southern Wisconsin, is a 33,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The Delavan plant has four forging hammer lines in a range from 3500 lb. to 6000 lb. All four of these hammer lines utilize the latest Lasco HOU programmable hammers. This range of equipment size allows us to produce forgings ranging from less than a pound up to 12 pounds. All steel bars are heated in one of four induction heaters manufactured to meet the requirements of our forging lines. The use of induction heat provides a consistent forging temperature and produces a forging with very little scale.
A fully equipped tool room and die maintenance area allow us to repair any worn tooling as required so that all tooling remains in top condition. All tooling is stored inside our facility on die racks to allow for quick set up times when we change jobs.
In addition to the four forging lines, our Delavan plant houses many other production capabilities. A 500 Ton hydraulic steel shear allows us to cut incoming bars to proper forging length. A 14 Cu. Ft. Wheelabrator machine allows us to provide our customers with clean forgings that are free from scale.
Also located in Delavan are a small 85 Ton mechanical press and two Etchells Hydraulic presses, adjustable from 100 to 1000 Tons. These presses allow Forgings & Stampings to provide forgings that meet tighter tolerances for straightness, flatness and thickness.
