ABF’s work in this segment is very well known to the industry. Plumbing components and especially forged items have particularly special needs within the Australian market. When dezincification resistant material is required there is a need for specialized skills in the manufacture of forgings. Many in the industry have relied on the high quality and technical support ABF has been providing. Our experience in this area has been invaluable for customers seeking testing authority approvals such as WaterMark.
Many of our customers require more than just a raw copper forging. More and more specifications require high quality machining and surface finishing. Also in many cases once the component is completed assembly and testing can be provided to ensure the component is fit and ready for use on delivery.
Customer needs are more often requiring the supply of machined components. ABF has the resources to meet customer needs for low to high volume machined part supply. CNC machines are predominantly used to provide both turned and machining center capability. Chucking and automatic bar feed CNC lathes are used to provide high-speed repetition component supply. Both table and palletized CNC machining centers are used to provide precision-machined forgings. Naturally a wide variety of steel alloys can be machined to meet your specifications.
Whether your requirement is for components used in emergency breathing apparatus, recreational diving or industrial gas distribution ABF has the skills and resources to provide a high precision machined forging made from various alloys. Forgings made to meet the rigorous needs of rock or ice climbing or for handling high pressure gases must have a high level of quality and reliability.
As the need to replace more traditional heavier materials increases the automotive industry have turned to much lighter and stronger forged alloys. ABF is well placed to provide alternatives for high-strength light-weight components used in areas such as suspension, steering and drive-train. Having a supplier that can forge and machine the finished component must be an asset for any OEM.
ABF has considerable experience in the supply of high precision machined shafts used in the distribution of a variety gas and liquid mediums. Having CNC automated bar feed equipment and thread rolling, exotic steel alloy shafts can be manufactured to meet your requirements.
