Today, housings for gasoline pumps are largely components machined from hexagonal bar material. Due to the high machining costs, geometrical flexibility is rather limited and on the whole the parts are heavier than functionally necessary. With the geometric possibilities of hot forging, the material can now be introduced precisely to the required areas. Other areas may demonstrate indentations or cavities. This leads to cost-efficient weight savings (after all, material is saved). The use of martensitic stainless steel leads to parts with a high load-bearing capacity directly after controlled cooling from the forging heat.
