Over the years the forging process has remained constant. However, through the advances in manufacturing techniques used in the production of tooling and the use of technology that enables the prediction of metal flow and optimal material usage, the process and results that can be achieved have been vastly improved.

KimberMills have in-house CAD/CAM facilities, which greatly enhance the accuracy and repeatability of dies, together with an improved speed of manufacture. This gives us increased flexibility and reduces the cost and lead time for the delivery of the finished product.

The use of simulation software, using finite element analysis, gives predictions of grain flow, defects, optimal temperatures, die stress analysis and die-wear.
