When it comes to components created by rolled rings forging, they are typically much stronger and better at standing up to wear and tear that is standard in environments that undergo extreme temperatures. But how are they made? Where can they be found? We break it down for you below.
The Forging Process
First, the material is rounded and cut to size according to how much it weighs. It is then upset to reach the intended integrity, directional grain, and other specifications. The workpiece is punched and pierced to be the ring rolled process. After that, it is placed on the ring mill to be rolled. The idler roll applies pressure against the drive roll and slowly the ring diameters are increased. Continued pressure is applied, and this reduces the wall thickness. The axial rolls control the height as it is being rolled. This is repeated until the proper size and specifications are reached.
Benefits and Applications
There are a lot of benefits and applications to components created by this method. The most notable is how strong the final product is. The rings that are produced are stronger than other parts because they are extremely resistant to heat and other things that typically cause issues with other parts. Rolled rings are made from many different types of materials, such as:
- Stainless Steel
- Alloy Steels
- Super Alloys
- Nickel Aluminide
- And much more!
Because of how versatile these components are, you typically see them all over the place. They are common in any environment that is exposed to extreme temperatures and temperature changes.
