SMB SA is one of the world's leading producers and providersof precision metal forging and finishing, using its state of the arttechnology, innovative design capabilities and customized solutions.
As an independent forger, SMB has the ability to workclosely with clients in developing efficient, environmentally conscientious andcost-effective custom solutions. SMB offers rapid turn around, and is willingto to handle short-runs, and complex geometries.
SMB is a reliable partner and takes pride in its untarnishedreputation for consistently high quality, punctuality and flexibility inproduction and services!
With over 40 years of forging experience, SMB has forgedover 20,000,000 parts in countless shapes, sizes and metals. As a precisionforging specialist, we work closely with you though the entire process, fromdesign optimization to finishing, to ensure you get the highest quality andmost reliable forgings.
SMB has an established history of producing orthopedicimplants in all standard materials. To date, SMB has delivered over 100different types of hip implant, from precision forged articles requiringminimal machining, to parts with overall material allowance to enable for themachining of several sizes from one forging. SMB also offers a collection ofstandard hips that are available for immediate production to meet your criticalneed.
Over the last 20 Years SMB has forged over 1,000,000 hipimplants!
By utilizing isothermal forging techniques, SMB can producenet shape hips that would otherwise be impossible to achieve. The resultinghips require little or no finishing, and offer substantial savings in time andmoney. SMB's hip replacements undergo stringent quality controls to ensure theyare incredibly reliable, and show very homogeneous metallurgical properties.
