Firth Rixson has announced that it will install a new large isothermal forging press, along with a fully automated manufacturing line, in its newly commissioned closed die forging plant Firth Rixson Forgings LLC, in Georgia, USA. Unique in design, function and control, the isothermal unit will have the capability of manufacturing the broad range of current and projected high temperature Aero engine isothermal component requirements.

"The next generation of aero engines will rely on greater numbers of isothermal forged components. Firth Rixson's addition of isothermal forging capability once again affirms our commitment to provide the Aerospace industry with technological solutions to cost, capability, and capacity constraints," said David Mortimer, CEO of Firth Rixson. "This expansion facilitates the development of unique technological partnerships, guaranteeing supply chain security for the Aero industry customer base."

The new installation will increase the 200,000 square foot manufacturing floor space at the Georgia facility by ˜20%, and will include the integration of additional dedicated manufacturing process equipment.
