Forging Process Description:
The Forging process delivers near net shape product with material integrity and directional grain flow imparting desirable directional properties such as tensile strength, ductility, impact toughness, fracture toughness and fatigue strength. Forgings are free from internal voids and porosity. The process achieves consistent material uniformity assuring a predictable response to heat treatment.
When to use Forgings:
When high quality starting material is required that is straight, true and concentric
Solid bars or tubes requiring further machining
When shape or profile can be forged in to reduce machining cost
Variety of volumes, including small usage
Typical Forging Products:
Aerospace components such as Stators, Spacers, Seals, Thrust cones, Seats and Flanges
Food Industry components such as Blenders, Vessels, Conveyor parts, Mixers, Gear rings

Forging Quality Standards:
Pressure Equipment Directive (PED)
Do you flame cut rings out of plate and want to investigate the use of forgings to save material cost?
Do you have a part that you would like to convert to a forging for near net shaping or improved mechanical properties?
Do you want to speak to a Metallurgist regarding a part and environment to help with material selection? Alloy selection can greatly affect overall cost and part manufacturability.
