A process used widely and performed to the highest level by Ferralloy is seamless rolled ring forging. It plays an important role in the manufacturing of certain components. Forging is a method of manufacturing inherently stronger components for machinery.
When apparatuses are needed to develop wind turbines or high-quality gears are required for mechanical parts, the ring forging process is used to manufacture superior pieces. The forging process uses different metal and alloy types to comply with the highest standards – among the most commonly used is titanium.
Why is Titanium Used in Seamless Rolled Ring Forging?
Titanium can be used for a wide range of metal parts, from tubing to bolts to fasteners. And this metal alloy is used for good reasons. The list of titanium benefits is a long one. Titanium seamless rolled ring forging is applied in water treatment, desalination, power generation, marine, chemical processing, aerospace military, and medical technologies.
Aside from the fact that titanium rolled ring forging has many applications, its features are exceptional. It provides efficient low thermal expansion, low elasticity module, non-toxic and non-magnetic, high melting point, exceptional oxidation capabilities, and exceptional bearing to cryogenics property. Other notable features are:
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Outstanding strength-to-weight percentage
- Low density
- High-heat resistance
What makes titanium a special forging material is its properties. According to forging experts, the following are titanium’s main properties that make it an exceptional material for forging processes.
- Hydrogen storage
- Shape memory
- Low damping resistance, modulus of elasticity, thermal conductivity, non-magnetic, and density
- High-temperature easy oxidation, strength, and heat resistance
Likewise, titanium rolled ring forging offers tensile strength close to yielding strength, good performance at low temperatures, and exceptional corrosion resistance.
