Forged Nickel Alloys

Forged Nickel for Excellent Corrosion- & Wear-Resistance

With the ability to withstand intense temperatures, nickel alloys are used for forgings that need to weather the most severe environments and, therefore, must be wear-resistant as well as corrosion-resistant. Nickel alloys have high flow stress even at elevated temperatures, making it difficult to move during the forging process. Maintaining a fine grain structure is needed to meet the demanding specifications.  This requires more tonnage and specific temperature and reduction sequences to shape the material.

Scot Forge has the capability to forge nickel alloys to your specific requirements and specifications. From creating rings, discs and blanks, to complex forged shapes, our metal forging technology creates forged nickel products that exceeds customer expectations.

Scot Forge holds an inventory of various alloys for customers to order for their nickel forging needs and specifications:
