The process of seamless rolled ring forging involves the use of many different types of materials. These rings can be made of carbon, stainless steel, or alloy. Alloy steel contains an additional alloying material aside from carbon to improve the heat treat response or mechanical and physical properties of the rolled rings.On the other hand, stainless steel material is used to create finished products that look elegant and can withstand rust and corrosion. Lastly, companies use carbon material to produce lightweight and heat resistant rolled rings.
Rolled ring forging can significantly reduce material costs! Typically, it uses fewer starting metal components to create the desired shapes. For instance, if the process requires a torch cut part, the complete center slug and entire corner stock are lost. With other forging processes, other parts are produced to a size that results in minimal waste.
Using a rolled ring forging process, the same material can be created from several and various sizes of starting billets or ingots. It allows for a broader variety of inventoried material grades. The flexibility of the production process implies that forges materials of almost any grade can be designed and produced rapidly and more economically.
This type of forging eliminates or reduces rejections by yielding to enhanced structural integrity and using forging-quality materials. Additionally, the rolled ring forging process provides weld-free parts created with cleaner and quality material.
Seamless rolled ring forging can likewise yield tool life advantages, lead time, and excellent machining. The reduced cost comes from forging a size that’s near its actual measurement instead of doing it with an alternative metal component like a bar or plate. With this type of process, it will require less machining to finish the product.
