Why Forging for Container Lifting Lugs?

Forging is one kind of metal working process that forms final shape by pressing solid bars under high pressure. Different from casting process, the materials applied in forging are mainly forged steel, forged aluminum, forged brass, ect. Among them, forged steel is the most popular material type for its low cost.

Similar to investment casting components, closed die forging can also be used to manufacture many small metal components for industries like mining, agriculture, forestry, oilfield, ect. By comparision, this forging method shows better working performace.

Container Lifting Lugs are closed die forged by special alloy steel with high intensity and high toughness, and then it is quenched and tempered for better performance. Surface treatment could be powder coated, mostly in yellow or red colors.

Some advantages of forged container lifting lugs:

1) Forging will improve the internal organization and improve the mechanical properties of container lifting lugs.

2) Closed die forging can make net shaped container lifting lugs, thus will greatly reduce material waste and machining cost.

3) For the large demand of container lifting lugs, forging is the ideal production method for both sample and lots produdction.
