Vitkovice Hammering immediately recognized the benefits of our hydraulic radial forging machines. That’s why the company ordered an SMX 800 / 18 MN from SMS group. Primarily, Vitkovice Hammering forges structural steels, special steels, and tool steels. Our customer successfully produces individual forgings including higher-strength materials such as nickel-based alloys or stainless steels within the maximum weight and dimensional ranges. The greatest productivity boost is achieved for billets with a charge weight of 8 t. This billet weight represents a worldwide first for forgings produced on a radial forging machine.
