Metal Rings are needed for several different types of applications. One of the most widely used metal components, metal rings can vary in size, thickness and in diameter. In order to achieve a strong, durable and cost effective metal ring for your project, there is one process that stands above the rest, but which is it? Keep reading to learn the differences between the rolled ring forging and plate burnout processes in order to manufacture a metal ring.
In the Plate Burnout process, which is just one of the many processes in which a metal ring can be achieved, the metalworker begins with a plate of metal. Once the component specifications are known, the plate is punctured in the shape and size of the metal ring that is needed. Essentially, the ring is just punched out of the metal to form in the metal ring. This type of method make the metal ring more susceptible to fatigue.
Rolled Ring Forging
In the manufacturing method of seamless rolled ring forging, the waste of the metal that is punched out is avoided and the piece and stronger and more durable. A donut shape is formed from metal and then is forged into the metal ring that is needed. The size and diameter is shaped from this donut shaped metal, as the metal is at extremely high temperatures and is malleable. This process saves wasting the metal from a plate when the ring is punched out, which makes it a more cost effective method. This process also results in stronger components.
