Hot Forging VS. Cold Forging

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Steel Forging

Forging is one of the common manufacturing processes, that shapes a metal piece by applying compressive forces on it. Forging could be performed under different temperature conditions, like hot forging, warm forging and cold forging. The forging process uses hammers or presses to squeeze and deform the material into high strength parts. The forging manufacturing […]

Hammer Union

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Steel Forging

Hammer unions are widely applied throughout the energy industry. There are many sizes, shapes and pressure ratings of hammer unions, and when used correctly they are a safe and reliable means of transporting fluid. Perhaps one of the most critical elements to correct hammer union use is that the two halves are compatible. There are, […]

Closed Die Forging Applications

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Steel Forging

Closed die forging is used as a single-pass process for the production of very simple forgings and as a multiple-pass process for parts with complex shapes. Multiple-pass forging includes preparatory operations (shaping of blanks), which is followed by the final stamping. Multiple-pass forging is performed on mechanized or automatic equipment, in hydraulic presses capable of a force […]

Weld on D-ring or welded D-ring has a multitude of use. They are used primarily as temporary lifting (suspension) points on unwieldy structures and fabrications. The “D” Rings are also used for “tie-down” points on similar objects for secure transport. Available in Weld-On only. Each type of weld on D ring has a weight load […]

Hot Forging

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Steel Forging

It is essential to note that the forging manufacturing process is completely different from the casting one (see difference between forging and casting), where the molten material is poured into a mold. Another significant difference to the other manufacturing methods as casting and machining is that forging improves the mechanical properties of the material by refining […]
