  • Shafts: Generator and turbine rotors
  • Discs and Hubs: Adapters, covers, impellers, nozzles, suction/discharge end caps, tube sheets, wheels
  • Bearings: Hydrodynamic fluid film bearings, tilting pad thrust bearings, and other specialty bearings.

We have more than 75 years of experience in forging various non-ferrous alloys suited for the demanding needs of the power generation applications, including stainless-steel, titanium, copper and super alloys.

History of Power Generation Forging

Modern power generation processes dates back to the 1800s with the use of using wire and magnets to create electrical currents. This method continues to be used today to generate electricity. With the rise of the Industrial Revolution at the end the 19th Century, electrical production had become commercialized. Additional methods to create electricity, including the use the of steam engines, also became widely used to provide electricity, and also provided power to operate boats and trains. As a result, electricity became more readily available, and public buildings and businesses were able to have electricity.  

Today, power generation continues be a continuously evolving industry. New technological advances has allowed the power generation sector to continue to grow – and new energy sources have been discovered.

Types of Power Generation

There are many forms of primary energy sources that can create electrical energy in an economically and resourceful way. All forms of power generations have their own .

The burning of fossil fuels, such as diesel, natural gas, or coal, is the most commonly used energy source. 

Rain / water is used to spin generations to create power 

The use of controlled nuclear, or fission, reactions to create power 

Also known as wind energy, wind turbines collect the wind’s kinetic energy and converts it into electrical energy.

The use of collecting photovoltaic cells from sunlight, is also a form of energy source to create energy.
