Forged Hooks - Shank lengths, tolerances, inspection and wear limits

Depending on forging size and manufacturer, DIN 15400 series hooks are forged using closed die, open die, or hybrid processes, producing the corresponding as-forged toleranances. See Specs for hook forging dimensional tolerances. 

Extended shank lengths up to defined limits are available in stock from Miller (extended beyond the DIN-defined standard shank length). See Specs. Extensions beyond this can be made to order.
