Philadelphia Forgings provides the forgings ships need when they're in drydock and need to get back to work quickly. From gear blanks to pintle pins, ABS shafts and couplings, we supply high-strength forgings in various sizes, shapes and grades to make these parts. Our forgings feature DNV, ABS, BV, and Lloyd's approval.

Some of the forgings that Philadelphia Forgings
supplies and produces parts include the following:
  • Shaft Couplings
  • All types of ABS Marine Shafts
  • ABS Gear Blanks
  • Rudder Stock

We supply forgings that are alloy, stainless, carbon, and copper based. Many of these parts require materials such as super austenitic, nitronic, and super duplex grades.

There are a few advantages to forged marine parts. Sound centers and a continuous grain flow allow for a superior impact strength as compared to weldments or rolled bar. Forged parts will maintain their strength and durability over time, which will lead to less spending on repair costs and prevent you from losing revenue during the repair downtime.

Philadelphia Forgings has products that follow the near net shapes technique, which results in greater strength. It also reduces the need for additional machining, stress-prone welds, and numerous repairs.

We offer numerous ABS shafts such as propeller, rudder stock, line, drive, and more. Not only that, but we have keystock, marine tubing, and torch cut shapes. No matter what your shipbuilding forging needs, Philadelphia Forgings has the equipment and experience needed to maintain your ships.
