Rolled rings are one of the types of the forging process. Forging is a manufacturing process where metal is pressed, pounded or squeezed under great pressure into high strength parts known as forgings. Typically, forgings are the more cost-effective option when it comes to the metalworking process. Let’s take a look at how you can keep the cost of your rolled rings to a minimum.

Less Costly Than Castings

Forged products are more reliable than castings. Since casting defects occur in a variety of forms, forgings also cost less. They are manufactured without the added costs for tighter process controls and inspection that are required for casting.

Cost-Effective Alternative to Fabrications

A multiple-component welded assembly cannot match the cost-savings gained form a properly designed, one-piece forging. In addition, weldments require costly inspection procedures, especially for highly stressed components. Forgings don’t.

Use Less Costly Materials Than Powder Metal Parts

The starting materials for high-quality P/M parts are usually water atomized, pre-alloyed and annealed powders that cost significantly more per pound than bar steels. Forgings also make better use of material and generate little scrap. In high-volume production runs, forgings have the decisive cost advantage.
