Hot Formers

HNP/HBP/HPF Series Hot Formers

The HNP is a 3-station hot former, the HBP a 4-station hot former with simultaneous inner-outer bearing race forming capability, and the HPF a 4-station hot former that uses a stripper plate to separate simultaneously forged inner and outer ring blanks. The Sakamura hot formers feature a unique dual-action ram that improves forging precision by separating the initial distortion-inducing upset hit from the subsequent final forming hits.
