Rotary and walking beam furnaces ensure temperature controlled and uniform soak times to give consistent hardnesses across a batch
Mechanical presses of up to 350 tonnes are used to form parts to the correct geometry while the part is “hot”, producing a product that has a refined micro-structure. This is part of what separates Chapmans products from the cold worked parts produced by some manufacturers.
For certain parts such as ploughshares, we offer a choice between a horizontal upsetting forge, which provides exceptionally high strength components, or a 600 tonne counterblow hammer for greater dimensional flexibility within the same component.
In our tempering process, the latest PLCs control parameters of time and temperature to ensure the cycle is correct for each individual material cast analysis.D printed samples made in house to quickly test and verify a design.
