Benefits of Forgings
Forging metal produces desirable characteristics that cannot be
attained easily through machining, welding, or casting. The act
of forging breaks up the cast structure of the raw stock and refines
its grain structure. Areas of low density, microshrinkage, and gas
porosity are consolidated, resulting in a component of increased
strength, soundness, and durability.
Philadelphia Forgingss products are created
through forging processes that include but are not limited to the
Forging. Open die forging deforms the metal using flat dies to repeatedly
pound the workpiece while it is constantly manipulated. The movement
of the workpiece, therefore, is critical to producing the correct
Die Forging. Closed die forging features the same benefits as open die forging
but offers three dimensional control. Two dies containing the impression
of the desired shape deform the metal. This process is good for
creating forgings that are smaller or involve more intricate shapes
Hand Forging. Another name for open die or flat die forging, hand forging deforms
metal into the desired shape by repeated strokes of simple or open
contour dies and continuous manipulation of the workpiece. Hand
forgings create tools and other parts that have superior strength
and long service lives.
Upset Forgings. Performed on bar stock, this type of forging decreases the length
of the bar by expanding the cross section. The metal is forced to
gather into a specific shape creating tools, bolts, or rods of exceptional
strength and durability.
Rolled Ring Forging. These forgings are made by creating
a doughnut-shaped preform through open die forging. The shape and
diameter for the preform change under high pressures exerted by
a rolling mill. The result is a forged ring with a fine, unified
grain structure that does not require additional machining or burning
processes. We offer seamless rolled ring forgings in a wide variety of materials including carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, titanium, cooper and aluminum as well as High Temperature Alloys, High-performance Alloys & Superalloys.
