Did you know that Anderson Shumaker is a leading manufacturer of forged steel blocks? We forge blocks for all types of industries, including oil & gas, food processing, aerospace, defense, and many more.
We make our forged steel blocks through our open die forging process. Our blocks exhibit ductility, ease of machining, and high strength. The forged steel blocks are considered a “raw supply” product. This means they are not a finished product; instead, they are used by machine shops and product manufacturers to create final, finished parts. This gives our blocks versatility and practicality for many applications.
Forged steel blocks perform well in high-wear and high-pressure situations. Anderson Shumaker forges quality blocks from the highest-quality metals, including (but not limited to):
- 303 Stainless Steel
- 304 Stainless Steel
- 6061 Aluminum
- Tool Steel
Furthermore, our forged block capabilities are up to 54” in the cross section and up to 15,000 lbs max weight. We also specialize in short runs. Therefore, our short lead times and no minimum requirements are perfect for custom sizes and small quantity.
