Forgings refer to products manufactured by the process of shaping metal utilizing compressive forces. The compressive forces used are generally delivered via pressing, pounding, or squeezing under great pressure. Although there are many different kinds of forging processes available, they can be grouped into three main classes:
|Drawn out: length increases, cross-section decreases|
|Upset: length decreases, cross-section increases|
|Squeezed in closed compression dies: produces multidirectional flow|
Forging produces pieces that are stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, the internal grain deforms to follow the general shape of the part. This results in a grain that is continuous throughout the part, resulting in its high strength characteristics. Forgings are broadly classified as either cold, warm or hot forgings, according to the temperature at which the processing is performed.
Iron and steel are nearly always hot forged, which prevents the work hardening that would result from cold forging. Work hardening increases the difficulty of performing secondary machining operations on the metal pieces. When work hardening is desired, other methods of hardening, most notably heat treating, may be applied to the piece. Alloys such as aluminum and titanium that are amenable to precipitation hardening can be hot forged, followed by hardening. Because of their high strength, forgings are almost always used where reliability and human safety are critical such as in the aerospace, automotive, ship building, oil drilling, engine and petrochemical industries.
Bringing strength to the highest level with titanium forgings
If you’re into building phenomenally durable mechanisms, we’ve got something for you. Take a look at our titanium and titanium alloy forgings available as squares, rings, flanges, and other shapes. To ensure their unparalleled strength characteristics, we use a range of hot and cold compression processes. The applied techniques involve drawing out, upset, and closed-die forging.
Our facilities are equipped with all the machinery necessary to shape titanium into the desired form under pressure. Unlike casting, the forging process helps refine metal grain patterns, thereby boosting the mechanical strength and toughness of pieces. They can be further processed to fit the needed structure or machine.
At Baoji Sino-Swiss Titanium Co., Ltd, forging of titanium alloys (TI-6Al-4V, Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo, etc.) and commercially pure titanium is always backed up by quality assurance. We are ISO 9001-certified and bring consistency to each of the processes until you’re provided with precisely shaped pieces. For common applications, they can be made to meet a variety of AMS and ASTM standards. But if you need custom forgings, you can also turn to us for help.
How can you use our titanium flanges, rings, and other forgings?
Because titanium is jam-packed with toughness benefits, forgings made of it find all too many uses. Thanks to their spectacular tensile and bearing strength properties, as well as low density, these pieces are excellent additions to airframes, wing structures, automobile parts, manufacturing machinery, and many everyday items. After forging, titanium alloys become even more robust, which makes them suitable for applications involving heavy loads.
Additionally, this material is a second-to-none option when it comes to resistance properties. Our titanium forged rings, flanges, and other pieces can be utilized whenever there’s a need to withstand the effects of corrosion. Propeller shafts, heat exchangers, and pressure vessels are only a few of the many applications that are common today.
These properties and reduced weight are the key features of titanium. It allows for ensuring maximum operative performance while minimizing metal fatigue effects. This is the reason why it’s used in such an extensive list of industries:
- machinery building
