Henry Williams has been manufacturing seamless pipe forgings for a number of Blue Chip customers for many years. The special carbon steel tubes can be free issued or procured through our specialised European network of accredited mills allowing full material certification and traceability for the regulated oil and gas market. The heavy walled tube upset forgings are designed and manufactured specifically for well head unions and use in high volume fluid density pumping equipment.
Localised heating of bar ends is possible using both Gas and Induction heating methods. This enables product of up to around 8 metres to be forged on one or both of the ends. We can upset bar stock from 20mm up to 120mm in a variety of metals including carbon, special alloy and stainless steels.
Our portfolio of upset forging machines includes Covmacs No. 6 and No. 7 along with a fully refurbished 5” Acme “Double Toggle” forging machine. This process is ideal for forging bolts of all kinds including hexagons and tees, especially when used in conjunction with the associated induction heater. Other larger products such as drive shafts, half shafts, pinions and piston rods, where grain flow is of prime importance, are perfect for manufacturing on these machines.
