Die forging

Crankshafts, camshafts and gear wheels: machines just wouldn’t work without them. These workpieces are especially sturdy thanks to the forging process involved in producing these kinds of forged parts in large quantities. Even when subjected to extreme temperature fluctuations, in engines, for example, they keep everything running smoothly. Special applications in the area of die forging include ring rolling, for example, in the manufacture of rolling bearings and the production of steel cylinders.

With PHOSPHATHERM, Budenheim provides a unique range of lubricating and separating agents for all forming steps and levels. Besides black products containing graphite for heavy applications, the product range also contains so-called white products, clean separating agents that are suitable for light to medium applications. Budenheim’s green biodegradable products, in particular, take into account the increasing environmental aspects. Yet another distinguishing feature from Budenheim is that, as well as liquid concentrates, we also provide products in powder form for the white and black ranges. This reduces transport costs and ensures problem-free application in cold climate zones.

Cooling and reduction of friction and wear

In the form of lubricating and separating agents, phosphates are used in die forging to ensure that the surfaces of tools and workpieces are separated from one another.… more
