Forming metal components for various industries

SizTech provides machinery for forming metal components. Our machinery expand, shrink or roll form parts for various industries. Industries such as automotive, aerospace, energy (forging), power generation, industrial, and pipe.

 

We know that every customer’s product or component is different. The size, the shape, and material differ. We develop a unique process and design an efficient solution to meet your requirements. This includes conical, round, oval, square, or profiled cylindrical parts with materials such as titanium, aluminum, stainless steel, or incoloy, and all exotic aerospace materials for diameter sizes small to large.

Saving costs in the automotive industry

We develop expanding, shrinking, and combination shrinking-expanding processes for forming metal components while reducing material and time, and ultimately saving costs in the automotive industry. Below is a list of automotive components that can be formed on our machinery:

 

  • axles-rear and front,
  • exhaust parts,
  • brake drums,
  • bearings,
  • forgings, and
  • e-mobility components

 

We also offer new machinery and service for steel wheel manufacturers for the following segments:

 

  • Passenger car,
  • Truck,
  • Highway commercial,
  • Off Road, and
  • Trailer and ATV

 

For steel wheel manufacturers, SizTech has an exclusive partnership with Fontijne Holland, previously Fontijne Grotnes. We provide new machinery, spare parts, and service on Fontijne Holland, and competitor’s installed customer base. Machine products include cut to length lines, preparation lines, profiling lines, leak detector and valve hole press lines, and assembly lines. SizTech represents Fontijne Holland in North and South America.

 

It is common for steel wheel manufacturers to refurbish equipment. SizTech is the only company in North and South America to support these requests for Fontijne Holland.

Aerospace components of various materials and with complex geometries

We develop expanding, roll forming, shrinking, and combination shrinking-expanding processes for aerospace components of various materials and with complex geometries. Below is a list of components that can be formed on our machinery:

 

  • jet inlets,
  • outlet nozzles,
  • jet tanks, and
  • forged seamless rolled rings.

 

Seamless rolled rings are critical components for jet turbines and jet engines.

 

SizTech replaces other expensive processes such as press solutions and explosion forming. Conical, round, oval, square, or profiled cylindrical parts can be formed on SizTech equipment. Materials include, but are not limited to, aluminum, titanium, hastelloy, and incoloy.

 

Most aerospace applications are formed cold, but some could require hot forming. Hot forming is necessary when there is a limitation in yield strength at room temperature. We also offer a near net shape solution with roll forming where material will flow into different shapes close to final product dimensions.

 

The processes are designed into our metal forming machinery to achieve tight tolerances and the accuracy required by the aerospace industry. Our machines reduce or eliminate the need for machining; therefore, our customers experience great cost and energy savings.

Large and lightweight parts for the Energy (Forging) Industry

 

We develop expanding and shrinking processes for forming large and lightweight parts, especially forged rings. These are used in the energy industry for wind turbines. Our processes will accurately size the rings as well as improve roundness, material properties in relation to yield strength, and stress relieving. These processes save our customer’s time and material by reducing or eliminating machining. Rolled rings come in various sizes and each process is custom per the application.

 

Forging companies manufacture seamless rolled rings which work well in extreme environments and all-weather conditions. Their applications include

 

  • slewing bearing,
  • bearings,
  • support rings, and
  • flanges.

 

Wind turbines are getting larger and larger, therefore, the parts needed to be sized are getting larger. SizTech can fulfill the size requirement and forces needed from the industry. The expanding and shrinking processes offer great benefits to forging companies around the world.

Improving quality and saving costs in the Power Generation Industry

 

SizTech processes offer great benefits to the power generation industry around the world. Our processes will accurately size the rings as well as improve roundness, material properties in relation to yield strength, and stress relieving. These processes save our customer’s time and material by reducing or eliminating machining. Components come in various sizes and each process is custom per the application.

 

We develop expanding, roll forming, shrinking, and shrinking-expanding processes for component manufacturers of wind power generation, coal, oil and gas power generation, and nuclear power generation. Applications for these manufacturers include, but are not limited to,

 

  • gas turbines components,
  • nozzles,
  • burners,
  • bearings,
  • flanges,
  • housings, and
  • tanks.

Forming metal components in the Pipe Industry

 

SizTech designs and manufactures innovative solutions for forming pipes and tubes in the pipe industry. These are used e.g. in the oil and gas, nuclear, and construction industry.

 

We develop expanding and shrinking processes for applications such as

 

  • transportation pipe,
  • precision pipe,
  • drilling pipe,
  • seamless and welded pipe, and
  • specifically LSAW pipe.

 

Expanders are great for calibration and forming the complete length of pipe as long as 18 meters and pipe ends. Shrinkers are great for reducing drilling pipe diameters as the tolerances under API are getting tighter. Shrinking is also an excellent solution to improve material properties and the accuracy of the pipe ends. As the market changes, pipes are getting smaller in diameter and wall thicknesses are increasing. Our shrinking process offers a perfect solution.

 

For manufacturers with full length pipe expanders, we provide service visits, spare parts, and extend the equipment’s life span with upgrades and rebuilds. For more information, please see our service page.

Industrial Industry – if you don’t see your metal component SizTech will have options

 

Sometimes the shape, size or material of a component is so complex or unknown that you do not know how to form it. If you have a round, square, or oval part, and need a partner to form it, ask SizTech! We have the sizing technology for your rings or profiles, welded or not welded, in different shapes, with or without complex materials.

 

Also, call us to replace or add to your existing manufacturing process, to increase your productivity and reduce cost.
