Aluminium Forgings

Smiths High Performance supplies high-quality aluminium forgings to the global motorsport sector.

We are foremostly a stockholding business - we provide forgings to our customers because they take advantage of our unique and impressive supply chain services. So we partner with highly skilled forging companies to achieve these objectives.

Forging Methods

We generally supply forgings to our motorsport customers using open die forging methods. The grain structure, fatigue resistance and strength all improve during this process. It is is an ideal method for creating components of significant size since the only restriction is the actual size of the aluminium block itself.

Secondary machining and tolerance refinement may be necessary to achieve compliant specifications.

Why use Smiths HP and not a forging house?

It's a good question, and the answer is relatively simple. You should consider us for two reasons - firstly, our stock range includes products where the chemical and mechanical properties of our materials are improved. Many of our aluminium products have been developed to perform to the highest operating limits.

Secondly, our supply chain services; our proposition is second to none, and many of our motorsport customers choose us specifically for this reason. When considering material supply into such a fast-paced market sector, stock reliability, supplier confidence and fast lead and response times are business-critical.
