About Company

Founded in 1901, California Drop Forge is one of the oldest drop forge facilities in the western United States. The company opened their business in north Los Angeles, and over a century later California Drop Forge is in the same location producing closed die forgings for customers around the world.
California Drop Forge was originally a producer of oil tool forgings. Shortly after its founding, California Drop Forge began producing closed die forgings and machined components for the aerospace and medical industries. With a focus on producing top quality parts and keeping abroad of industry changes, California Drop Forge quickly became a leader in producing closed die forgings from a wide range of metals.California Drop Forge, Inc., a subsidiary of HBD Industries, is a key producer of closed-die forgings for aircraft structural and landing gear components, jet engines, and land-based turbines. Today, California Drop Forge, Inc. occupies 72,000 square feet of manufacturing space, complete with a die shop, layout inspection, non-destructive testing and machining capabilities. Our Los Angeles, California facility is optimally located to facilitate shipments to all parts of the world.

CDF Engineering & Design
We feel there is no margin for error or substitute for experience. The California Drop Forge Technical Team works closely with our Quality and Production Departments to ensure products produced for our aerospace, military, medical and other customers meet or exceed the ever-changing safety and precision standards required by these industries.Forging / tooling design and process development starts in our Engineering Department as soon as our customers supply their configuration and technical data. Our engineers use computer-aided design software programs such as CATIA and AutoCAD to aid and/or assist customers in improving their forging products or tooling designs.The Metallurgists on our technical team use deformation / simulation software to calibrate and predict with accuracy how material will behave during forging operations. Simulation enables us to predict grain-flow, determine metal strain rates and calculate the required metal temperature through the forging process, allowing us to reduce tryouts and pass along cost savings to our customers.Our Technical Services are available to help our customers get the highest quality closed die forgings and machined components possible. Our long history in this business, combined with our production expertise allows us to create effective solutions for your forging requirements.
