Steel Forging for Automotive Application

Posted on Posted in Steel Forging

Steel Forging is always perferred to produce critical components for automotive application. With closed die forging method, all kinds of automotive components could be customized in any steel alloys, such as AISI 1045 steel, ASTM4140 steel, etc.

Why Steel Forging for Automotive Application?

  1. Steel forging can produce automotive components that are stronger than an equivalent cast or machined automotive part. As the steel billet is shaped during the closed die forging process, its internal grain deforms to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the grain is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a automotive part with improved strength characteristics.
  2. Closed die steel forging can be used to create automotive parts made out of almost all steel alloys, including carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel. Thanks to no material limitations, parts are able to be made to fit your exact needs of automotive application.
  3. Steel Forging with closed die method is able to produce near net shapes for automotive parts. As a result, these forged automotive components require little or no machining, which saves both time and money.
  4. Steel Forging orgings can target a lower total cost for the large demands of automotive components when compared to a casting or fabrication. When you consider all the costs that are involved in a product’s lifecycle from procurement to lead time to rework, then factor in the costs of scrap, downtime and further quality issues, the long-term benefits of steel forgings can outweigh the short-term cost savings that castings or fabrications might offer.

Typical Automotive Forgings are:

  • Connecting rods
  • Control arm
  • Rocker arm
  • Crankshaft
  • Camshaft
  • Tie rod end
  • Steering knuckle
