Forged Discs Offer Strength & Durability

Forged discs are made by upsetting or standing heated material on end and working it between the upper and lower dies. The upset process induces directional grain flow, which gives strength, ductility, and increased resistance to impact and fatigue not found in plate or bar stock.
