The Four Most Common Custom Forged Shapes

When compared to castings, forging rings are known to provide more strength and durability. Products are made from four primary forged ring forms. Block, Ring, Cylinder, and Disc are examples of these forms. When it comes to forging common shapes, you should take a strategic and metallurgical approach to raw material selection, heat treatment, and machining. Here’s all you need to know about it.

Four Basic Custom Forged Shapes

Block Forged

Forged steel blocks are favored over unforged steel blocks because they offer higher tensile strength and superior durability and elasticity depending on the grade and quality of the raw resources. This is preferable to utilizing steel castings or plates. 

Forged blocks are utilized in various sectors, including chemical, food manufacturing, electric engine production, steel plants, and machining. 

Forged Steel Rings

Compared to weldments, castings, or a flame-cut plate, a forged ring provides more strength and durability. A seamless circle with a solid inner core or structure and grain flow circumference is produced using an open die hydraulic forging press with tooling, resulting in a product with outstanding mechanical characteristics, toughness, and fatigue resistance. Excellent concentricity and surface smoothness are other vital features in a forged steel ring.  

Forged steel rings are frequently utilized in aeronautical engineering, mining, and power production. Many pressure vessel connectors, such as valves, couplings, and forged flanges, contain them. 

Cylinder Forgings

Forged cylinders are ideal for high-stress applications and hazardous environments because of their strength, performance, and durability. Forging a cylinder involves creating an upset preform and hammering a hole in the middle.  

Forged Discs

Forged discs are solid and long-lasting. Forged discs and blanks, like other forgings, have a more robust microstructure than alternative metal forming processes like burning off the plate.
