Valves and Flanges Manufacturing Large Forgings from China
Zhejiang Lianda Forging is the only Asian supplier of forgings at the fair, Business Development Director Simon Yu believes. The company specializes in manufacturing semi-finished parts for high-pressure valves and flanges, using open-die forging to produce items measuring up to 1200 mm and weighing up to 3 m.t.
The company has more than 30 years’ experience. It forges and machines nickel and copper alloys as well as carbon, stainless, and alloy steels.
Some European forging companies are at the fair, Yu says, but the hot and potentially dangerous nature of the process means that it is being carried out in Europe to a decreasing extent. Yu wants to find new customers in Germany and Italy, because that country has a central place in the European valve industry.
