Rolled ring forging is a process where a preformed circular piece of metal is pierced to make a donut shape. The ring is heated, then rotated to reduce its wall thickness and increase its diameters. It is used in a number of fields, from the nuclear industry to machine shops to pharmaceutical companies. Here are some of the advantages of rolled ring forging.
Forgings are stronger than other components. They maintain their strength through high-temperature functions.
Unlike other components, it's much easier to predict how rolled rings will react to heat. With many other components, there is somewhat of a guessing game when it comes to how much heat it can take without melting or deforming. With forgings, it is known how much heat it can withstand.
Forged rings are manufactured at a lower cost than similar products. There’s less machining involved since the rings already closely match the finished shape. As a result, it costs less to produce.
The high temperature needed to create the rings gives the metal more strength than other components.
The rings can be made from any material that can be forged such as alloy, stainless steel, carbon, and aerospace metals. That versatility makes them a great option for fields such as power generation, chemical, and refinery industries.
