Understanding Seamless Rolled Rings?

The Advantages of Rolled Ring Forging

The technique of rolled ring forging begins with a circular preform of metal that has been punctured to create a hollow “doughnut” shape. This ring is heated, then rotated to reduce the thickness of the ring’s walls while expanding the diameters.  From the nuclear industry to machine shops to pharmaceutical companies, rolled ring forging is employed in a variety of industries worth millions to billions of dollars, such as aviation and aerospace, mining, oil and gas, power generation, and defense sector and weaponry. As a result, it is important that we understand the mechanism that produces these mechanical components.Some of the benefits of this forging method are listed below.

  • There are fewer limitations.
  • Extremely cost-effective.
  • The character of the metal chosen is defined by the entire forging process. After that, it’s decided whether or not using this metal is worthwhile.
  • When employed in various industrial applications, it strengthens the metal at high temperatures, making it more durable.

What Materials Are Used in Rolled Rings?

Essentially, it’s determined by the unique requirements of each client. While stainless steel or an alloy is the preferred material, aluminum, titanium and other metals or alloys are also viable options. The procedure remains the same regardless of the metal or alloy employed. However, because each metal has a different heating and cooling temperature, additional considerations are taken while forming, sizing, heating, or cooling it.
