The Rolled Ring Forging process produces workpieces with higher density and aligned grain flow. They range in weight from a few pounds to thousands of pounds and size from a few inches to over twenty feet.
Rolled Ring Forging Process
The Rolled Ring Forging process is known for its reduced material costs, versatility and superior quality of the finished product. It produces flat washers and cylinders that are two feet tall, several feet outside diameter, and weigh more than six tons. Furthermore, since the metal is not liquefied, the grain structure of the processed metal is preserved.
No scrap and dimensional versatility make rolling ring forging an ideal method for metal forming. Any type of metal can be formed using this process, including stainless steel, aluminum, nickel alloys, and all forms of steel.
The main type of Rolled Ring Forging is seamless rolled ring forging, which produces rolled rings with strength and fatigue resistance not found in welded or torch cut rings.
