Hot steel bars Ajax-CECO
Many manual tasks — such as moving heavy steel rods, pipe and other stock in and out of equipment — have been automated to improve worker safety and expand performance efficiency.

Automatic Drive for Forging Machinery

Ajax-CECO efforts reveal how automation of material handling is increasing forging productivity and operator safety.

Global industrialization owes a debt to forging equipment operators: Without forgings, over the past 150 years, manufacturers would not have had the components needed to manufacture cars or aircraft, or to drill for oil, mine for minerals, or to build railroads, ships, and other standard equipment and structures. However, as with any process involving manual labor, automation is changing the game.
