How are Forged Pipe Fittings Made

Forged fittings are made by hammering a piece of metal into the desired shape, which increases its strength and durability compared to other types of fittings. The forging process involves heating the metal to a high temperature, then shaping it with a hammer or press. The result is a strong, durable, and reliable fitting that can withstand high pressure and extreme temperatures.

As a leading manufacturer of forged pipe fittings in India, Bullion Pipes & Tubes LLP specializes in producing high-quality forged steel pipe fittings that meet the industry’s highest standards. But how exactly are these fittings made? In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the forging process and the steps involved in creating forged fittings.

At Bullion Pipes & Tubes LLP, we use the latest technology and equipment to produce high-quality forged steel fittings. Our manufacturing process involves several steps, including:

The Manufacturing Process of Forged Pipe Fittings

Heating the Steel:

The first step in the process of manufacturing forged pipe fittings is to heat the steel. The steel is heated to a temperature that is above the recrystallization temperature of the metal. This temperature is necessary to make the steel soft and malleable.

Forming the Steel:

Once the steel is heated, it is placed into a forging press. The press applies pressure to the metal, shaping it into the desired form. The press can be a mechanical press, a hydraulic press, or a hammer. The type of press used depends on the size and shape of the fitting being made.

Machining the Fittings:

After the fitting is forged, it is then machined to the final size and shape. This involves cutting, drilling, and threading the fitting. The machining process is critical to ensure the fitting is made to the required specifications.

Heat Treatment:

After the machining process, the fitting is heat-treated to increase its strength and hardness. The fitting is heated to a high temperature and then cooled rapidly. This process is called quenching. The fitting is then tempered to reduce its brittleness.


The final step in the process of manufacturing forged pipe fittings is inspection. The fittings are inspected to ensure they meet the required specifications. The inspection process includes visual inspection, dimensional inspection, and testing of the mechanical properties of the fitting.

The entire process is closely monitored to ensure each fitting meets our strict quality standards. We conduct rigorous testing and inspection at every stage of the manufacturing process to ensure our customers receive the highest quality forged fittings.
