Seamless rolled rings are created through a process called ring rolling. Ring rolling uses a machine called a rolling mill that can generate rings of a range of diameters and weights. Let’s take a deeper look at what seamless rolled ring forging is.
The process of seamless rolled ring forging starts with a circular metal piece that is pierced to form a doughnut-shaped component. Seamless rings are produced using a range of configurations such as tall cylinders and smaller parts resembling washers and manufactured using a shaping tool.
Seamless rolled rings are found in mining, the oil industry, the military, and power generation. They help power rock crushing equipment, jet engines, windmills, and railways. As for specific products they are used in, they can be found in bearings, clutches, couplings, drives, flanges, gears, glass-lined reactors, machines, robotics, and valves.
There are a number of advantages to seamlessly rolled ring forging. It strengthens the metal in high temperatures and provides durability. It is also a lot more cost-effective when compared to the other processes. In addition, the forging itself makes it easy to predict how the metal reacts to the process, allowing for lesser manpower and effort. It can also be applied to all kinds of materials with significantly lesser restrictions.
We supply rolled ring forgings in diameters up to 110” from carbon, alloy, and stainless steel. Rolled ring forgings can be supplied in as-forged condition, rough machined, or we can machine completely finished rolled rings with close tolerances.
