A.C.S.A. Steel Forgings S.p.A.
A.C.S.A. STEEL FORGINGS was founded in 1935.
Since the 1960s we are exporting closed die hot steel forgings all over the world, with an export share of 70%.
We produce forgings from 0,5 kg to 250 kg using our 10 lines of presses from 1600 tons to 6300 tons, our hot extrusions lines from 400 to 1250 tons for hollow parts with lengths up to 1000 mm and diameter up to 250 mm and our hammer line with power of 25.000 Kgm.
Our products are used in any possible industry sector, such as automotive (commercial vehicles and motorcycles) , aeronautical, petrolchemical, earth movement, agricultural, machinery, and so forth. Wherever there’s a forged part ACSA can be the right supplier.
With the most updated technology (CAE) in our engineering department we can support our customers in their design phase by means of forging simulation which can optimize the forging process and their product. Our tooling department is completely autonomous and equipped with latest generation CNC-machines fully handled by CAD/CAM. The heating furnaces in our production are constantly controlled by optical pyrometers which check the temperature at every cut of material before forging operation to ensure high quality during process. The production process is continuously controlled by statistical control methods using sample parts taken out from the current production batches. With Our 3D-measuring machines, equipped with optical scanner, we can check our forgings and the material stock against the finished part model, granting improvements on the forgings towards the finished item.
Our internal laboratory is organized according to standard ISO/IEC 17025 and is able to perform tensile tests, impact tests, chemistry analysis and microstructure checks.
Specifically for engines we produce crankshafts, camshafts, rods, cylinders, counterweights and flywheels which we deliver to most of the best-known OEMs. We can also supply twisted crankshafts (e.g. for 6, 8, 12 cylinder engines, or others) which grant excellent performance thanks to their proper grainflow.
Other main products are driveshaft components, brake spiders, steering knuckles, various types of gears, and other products. If necessary we can deliver any part with special certification, for example for marine applications.
Our below listed machines allow us to produce forgings from 0,5 to 350 kg:
- 10 lines of presses from 1.600, 2.500, 4.000 and 6.300 tons.
- 2 hammers of 9.000 and 25.000 Kgm.
- 3 extrusions lines of 400, 1.000, and 1.250 tons.
- variety of materials ranging from carbon steels, low and high alloy grades, to duplex steels.
- Specified acc. EN and DIN, ASTM, ASME, British Standard, as well as special materials according to customer specification.
- Closed-Die forgings from 0,5kg to 250kg
