Robotic Bar Straightening
How do you straighten a bar with minimal stresses, eliminate operator variation and provide documented results? At JFC we use a computer-controlled bar straightener. The MAE straightener processes bars up to 32 ft long and 12" diameter. The machine measures runout every 2 ft, then applies a calibrated load at specific locations and re-measures until desired straightness is achieved. Thousands of bars have been straightened, and the operator simply calls up the program and loads and unloads bars. This process allows near net shape forgings to minimize material and machining time.
Jorgensen Forge hits a Safety Home Run! JFC has earned the FIA Safety Award. Through concentrated effort and a commitment to maintaining a safe work place resulted in an overall reduction in accidents and injuries throughout the plant. The sum total of our team members' hard work and diligence has resulted in a TCIR of 1.81 beating the previous best record by over 60%! Our challenge for 2014 is an even greater level of commitment to keeping Jorgensen Forge a safe work place and keeping everyone injury free.
Jorgensen Forge announces that it has received Nadcap accreditation for Heat Treat and NDT processes.
"Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy: it is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes. Companies such as Jorgensen Forge work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it," said Joe Pinto, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at the Performance Review Institute. "PRI is proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry by helping companies such as Jorgensen Forge be successful and we look forward to continuing to assist the industry moving forward."
