It's not the metal in the cap, it's the higher quality manufacturing process that makes a superior metal survey cap. Orbital forging is one part of the manufacturing process that makes the metal caps from Berntsen International stronger, smoother, and longer-lasting.
Berntsen's investment in the orbital forging process reduces the number of steps necessary to form a top quality cap and reduces the amount of time it takes to deliver the parts to the cusotmer. Orbital forging is a manufacturing process in which a part is held in a die cavity and then compressed by an upper die with extreme but indirect force. Compression of the upper die is not a flat, hard blow to the part but via a rotating 'wobble' that shapes and works the metal - much like your hand shaping a ball of dough. There are advantages to utilizing an orbital forging process, however most manufacturers do not choose the process because it involves additional tooling. This manufacturing process produces a superior product, is a faster method, ergonomically beneficial, and 'greener' to the environment.
The process for making a Berntsen marker cap has been perfected over four decades and because of orbital forging, superior products are available to customers.
Here's how the orbital forging process works:
An orbital forged cap has superior characteristics compared to traditional casting.
Other manufacturers may tout that they use the same material but they are using different processes in manufacturing that can’t match the performance in the field. The secret is in how the caps are made.
Berntsen is the only American manufacturer of survey caps that has invested in orbital forging and uses this process for our aluminum and bronze caps. It is a process that’s been perfected over many years and makes Berntsen survey caps the superior standard in high quality metal boundary marking products and why surveyors have been using Berntsen markers for over 45 years!
