House Number Forging Process

The image above shows how our House Numbers are made. Each number goes through a 5 step forging process. to the finished product.

First step is the Casting. Brass ingots are melted and sand casted into a near-net shape of the finished product, using slightly more material than is necessary. After casting comes the Forging process. Under extreme force, the sand casting is impacted at room temperature between two mating molds, called forging hammers. The extra material is then forced out of the mold along the gap between the molds. Cold forging aligns the material’s grain structure to produce very strong parts. It also improves surface consistency and reduces surface blemishes, which is important for decorative items such as address numbers. The third step is Trimming. This is when the extra material, that was forced out during the forging process, is trimmed from the part. The fourth step is Sanding. In this step, the surface is sanded to eliminate blemishes. The fifth and final step is Polishing and Lacquering. In this last step, the surface is further polished to reach the desired gloss level, and then lacquered to protect it.
