Weights up to 60,000 lbs. in both ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The forging process produces rings with controlled grain flow, which gives strength and resistance to impact and fatigue not found in rings torch cut from plate, or rolled and welded.
Typical problems associated with metal rings can frequently be traced to the metal-forming process. Cast rings are often plagued with substandard strength and integrity. Rolled and welded or cut rings from a plate are susceptible to fatigue and carry excess material and processing costs.
The forging process produces rings with controlled grain flow, which gives strength and resistance to impact and fatigue not found in rings torch cut from plate, or rolled and welded.
In the cases below, these common problems were solved by switching to the forging process.
To produce open die rings, material is first upset, then pierced to form an inside diameter. The ring is then drawn over a mandrel, if necessary, to achieve desired dimensions.
To produce a rolled ring, a preform is made by upsetting and piercing a hole on center. This preform is then placed on a ring mill and, through radial and axial pressure, is opened up to desired dimensions.
Forgings support Seattle Mariners' new ballpark roof. Forged gear pinions, bull gear rings, wheels axle pins, and connecting pins provide the strength needed to support the outdoor park's 11,000-ton retractable roof.
