Scot Forge is proud to be a 100% employee-owned manufacturer of custom open die forgings and seamless rolled rings. Starting as a small hammer shop in Chicago in 1893, Scot Forge has over 120 years of experience. Today we have the capability to forge parts weighing up to 100,000 lbs., and roll seamless rings up to 252″ in diameter. Operating with more than 1.3 million sq.ft. of manufacturing space between our five plants, over 250 million lbs. of forgings are shipped from Scot Forge annually.
Our capabilities include eight hydraulic open die presses, four ring mills, six pneumatic hammers, one bar planishing mill and one hydraulic upset press. We produce parts that weigh from 1 lb. to 100,000 lbs. in carbon, alloy, stainless steel, tool steel, copper, aluminum, nickel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Shapes that are readily forged include bars (round, square, flat or hex), blanks, rings, hubs, step-down shafts, hollows, and unusual, contoured custom shapes achieved by torch cutting and other secondary processing. We also feature Tartan Bars®—sound-center, rolled-surface round bars—a unique product produced only by Scot Forge. Additionally, we offer all downstream value-added processes including saw cutting, heat treating, contour torch cutting, destructive testing, metallurgical analysis and Level III nondestructive testing.
