Pulp and Paper Industry

The pulp and paper industry heavily relies on forgings to provide them long-lasting equipment and fewer breakdowns. Forgings, as opposed to other alternatives such as tubing or rolled bar, provide durability and a longer service life.

Philadelphia Forgings helps this industry meet all of their supply and paper converting maintenance needs. We provide forgings that are custom-sized, either in singular or multiple pieces.

Philadelphia Forgings supplies the following forgings for the paper industry:
  • Roll Journals
  • End Journals
  • Discs
  • Seamless Rolled Rings
  • Gear Blanks
  • Forged Hollow Outer Shells
  • Solid Spindle Rolls
  • Flanged Rolls

Some of the advantages of forged parts in the paper industry is their near-net shapes, which uses less material and thus saves you money. After machining, forged step shafts build journal hardness retention, which does not happen with rolled bar. Unlike mechanical tubing, a forging's advanced grain structure produces sharp engraving results.

Philadelphia Forgings' wide-ranging inventory contains ferrous and non-ferrous materials in a variety of grades. We offer forged parts that can be heat treated, tested, rough machined, or any combination.

No matter what the measurements may be, Philadelphia Forgings has the parts you need, whether for maintenance or a breakdown. Call or email us today for more information.
