Rolled ring forgings are metal parts that are created through a process referred to as ring rolling. Rolled ring forgings are a very popular metal part. They are used for bearings, clutches, couplings, drives, flanges, gears, glass-lined reactors, machines, robotics, valves, and more. However, it’s important to note that all rolled ring forgings are not the same. Different types of rolled rings are used for different applications based on their unique properties and benefits. What are the different types of rolled ring forgings? Keep reading to learn about 3 of the most common types of rolled rings!
3 Types of Rolled Ring Forgings
Stainless Rolled Rings
This type of rolled rings is made out of stainless steels. Stainless steels are steels that are heat and corrosion resistant and contain a minimum of 10% to 12% chromium along with other alloying elements. Stainless rolled rings are commonly used for food and chemical processing applications.
Alloy Rolled Rings
Alloy rolled rings are made out of alloy steel. Alloy steel is steel that contains additional alloying elements other than carbon in order to enhance its physical and mechanical properties. Typically, this type of rolled rings has enhanced strength and fatigue resistance. They are commonly used for gear and bearing applications in addition to a variety of industrial equipment applications.
Carbon Rolled Rings
This type of rolled rings is made out of carbon steel. Carbon steel is steel that contains up to around 1.2% carbon and all other elements are present in quantities too small to impact its properties. Carbon rolled rings are commonly used for pressure and structural vessel applications.
