Hot Pressing Dished Ends For Strength

Our manufacturing process involves hot pressing within the material's normalising temperature range. This method prevents materials from strain hardening at high temperatures, resulting in a combination of benefits.

The hot pressing approach ensures the highest quality yield strength and minimises the likelihood of stress on the product, guaranteeing a reliable and long-lasting solution.
