The facility is made up of a 1000 tonne Blanking Press, a walking beam furnace and a hot/cold forming press of 3000 tonne power. This facility was designed for the production of axle casings which can be formed in either the hot or cold conditions in two halves. The halves are then welded together. The base material for the casting is taken from a strip feed system and blanked in the 1000 tonnes press to the required profile. It then passes through the furnace to be either hot or cold formed into a semi cylindrical form in the 3000 tonne press. Two pieces are then welded together to form the centre section of the axle casing.

The 1000 tonne press is seen in the background, the furnace located between the presses and the 3000 tonne forming press in the foreground.
