PROVIDING THE PARTS
THAT HELP DELIVER THE POWER

At Scot Forge, we work to power up your results. You will find skilled resources to complement your own and a lasting partnership that is focused on getting you high-quality forged copper casting wheel & dam block products while meeting your time constraints.

Forged Casting Wheels & Dam Blocks

  • Dam Blocks for bar casting machines forged from C18000 or C18150
  • Rolls for rod systems forged from 8 in. to 24 in. O.D. in H-13 high-strength tool steel
  • ZC-1™ Forged Copper Casting Wheels from 40 in. to 144 in. O.D. weighing up to 10,000 lbs.

Chrome Zirconium Copper ZC-1™ is a high purity, precipitation hardenable alloy containing controlled quantities of zirconium and chromium. This alloy possesses high strength, excellent conductivity and a high softening temperature ideal for casting wheels.

Reasons to choose Scot Forge for Copper Wheels

Longer service life

Unique thermomechanical processing by Scot Forge produces wheels with high yield strength, excellent ductility, improved fatigue strength and improved resistance to thermal cracking. These results add up to wheels with the longest service life available in the industry.

Predictable, repeatable quality

Tightly controlled material chemistries, advanced rolling techniques, and precise production and quality control parameters yield casting wheels with constant, repeatable quality.

Emergency response

Our technical sales account managers and industry specialists know that in times of unplanned outages or critical situations, thousands—if not millions—of dollars can be lost each day. For this purpose, we have established an emergency response program which allows for daily entry of breakdown and rush orders for immediate production response.

A vast inventory of materials

Scot Forge maintains an extensive inventory of casting wheel-specific grades in ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as Chrome Zirconium Copper (CrZrCu) and Silver Copper (AgCu) for immediate production response, including C18150, C18200 and C18000. No matter the grade of material or shape and size of the part, our facilities are designed to support both single-piece and high-volume manufacturing using the highest-quality material available. 

World-class program management

Our technically trained sales staff, backed by our metallurgical engineers and forging experts, will work with you to discover ways to reduce long-term costs and improve lead times. Our industry specialists are ready to assist you in meeting your design challenges and program objectives with clear communications on everything from order status to accurate certification and milestone achievements.

Value-added options

We offer all downstream value-added processes including saw cutting, heat treating, contour torch cutting, destructive testing, metallurgical analysis, Level III nondestructive testing and finished machining. Combined with our advanced forging technology and the inherent advantages of the forging process, our capabilities provide a superior value solution.
