When it comes to modern job sites, it takes many different materials and parts to get the job done. Ring rolled products are a common component in most machinery and more.
The First Steps
First, the starting stock is rounded and cut to size by weight. It is then upset to reach the intended integrity and directional grain flow. After that, the workpiece is punched and pierced to begin the ring rolling process. After the workpiece is pierced, it is ready to be placed on the ring mill to be rolling.
Finishing the Product
Once the workpiece is placed on the ring mill, the ring rolling process begins. The idler roll applies pressure against the drive roll. Slowly, the ring diameters are increased as continues pressure is applied. This reduces the wall thickness. The axial rolls are what controls the height as it is being rolled. This process is continued until the desired size and specifications are reached.
Benefits of Rolled Ring Forgings
There are a lot of benefits to this method of forging. One of the most notable ones is how strong the final process is. The rings produced are stronger than other parts because they can maintain their strength high-temperature environments. They are cost effective too. There is less machining involved, which cuts down on costs. You can also use a wide range of materials to produce these rings. Allot, stainless steel, carbon, and aerospace metals are all materials that can be used.
