Whether we are aware of it or otherwise, carbon steel is a widely used material in the seamless rolled ring forging process. In fact, most of us are oblivious to the fact that carbon steel forgings are very much a part of our lives. Since carbon steel can be used in many different ways, it also comes in four grades and each of these grades carries a specific purpose. To give you an idea, this process involves punching holes into pieces of metal with specific degrees of thickness in order to produce donut-shaped components that are made to go through a process of squeezing and rolling until they turn into rings.
It’s important to note that the process of seamless rolled ring forging heavily relies on the type of material that’s being used. Carbon steel is ideal because of its strength, hardness, and its ability to resist wear – all of which are highly critical factors in achieving the forgings’ desired quality.
Since these are mostly used engines and machines, these forgings should be able to resist wear and withstand the heat as they’re exposed to high temperatures. Also, the fact that carbon steel doesn’t buckle with the impact as the forgings are being used in heavy-duty work, the strength of the material is perfect. Although low carbon ratio implies that the material is labeled as low, it would still work well for forging.
