Who are the heavyweight champions? Magnum Forge and Machine Works (MFMW).
MFMW accepted the challenge and victoriously produced the biggest open-die forged piece to date – the 18 3/4″ 10,000 psi Ram type BOP body.
With the billet weighing in at 11,500 kg (25,353 lb), the MFMW team utilized strategic planning and skillful material handling techniques to forge the BOP body in the 16-ton forging hammer.
This new feat has significantly added to the arsenal of open and closed die forgings WOM has to offer.
