Our upsetting machine is used to expand the diameter of shafts with heat and pressure. It is fast and accurate and is suitable for medium to long runs.
Upsetting can be used to make flanges or for splined shafts where the strength of the shaft will not be compromised by cutting splines below the original diameter.
Upsetting can also save a fortune in material and machining costs by expanding a small section rather than machining away material from a larger diameter to achieve the same result.
We have upset ferrous and non-ferrous materials and can achieve large gains in diameter.
We can produce custom nails, bridge spikes, bolts, rivets, locking pins and electrical cable dead-ends.
