As a preferred forgings supplier
to the nation as well as to regional areas including Pennsylvania,
Delaware, and New Jersey, Philadelphia Forgings ensures that customers
receive only the highest quality forged products. Our forgings are
produced from a variety of materials depending on a customers
application. Those who rely on Philadelphia Forgings for forged
products and other components are sure to find the superior materials
they need for some of the best values available on the market.
Philadelphia Forgings supplies products in
the following materials and more:
Forgings. Pure aluminum is a soft, silvery-white metal. Aluminum alloy, however,
exhibits hardness, strength, and other characteristics depending
on the alloying elements.
Steel Forgings. Stainless steel represents a group of metals that contain higher
levels of chromium and other alloying elements that result in excellent
levels of corrosion resistance as well as many other desirable properties.
Some stainless steel forgings are hardenable by heat treatment and
also exhibit good impact resistance and strength.
Steel Forgings . Alloy steels are iron-based materials that contain one or more alloying
element to create specific properties. One of the most common examples
is 4130 Alloy Steel, which contains molybdenum as well as chromium
and is hardenable by heat treatment. Please visit the alloy
steel forgings page to learn about other alloy steel grades.
Forgings. Titanium is known for excellent corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance,
and high strength accompanied by low weight and density. Commonly
found in scientific, commercial, and industrial applications, titanium
alloy forgings withstand corrosion by salt water, acids, and other
Steel Forgings. Carbon steel is a metal alloy of carbon and steel. There are four
types of carbon steels, ranging from low to very high, that are
classified by the amount of carbon they contain. Carbon steel forgings
exhibit strength, hardness, ductility, and impact resistance.
Steel. Encompassing a range of carbon and alloy steels, tool steel is known
for toughness and strength which make it ideal for forming tools.
Forging tool steel results in a product that retains its cutting
edge by resisting deformation as well as abrasion at higher temperatures.
Alloy Forgings. Nickel alloys contain other elements besides nickel depending on
what properties are desired. Nickel alloy is extremely ductile and
therefore capable of forming excellent forgings. Hastelloy®,
Waspaloy®, and Inconel® are all examples of common nickel-based
Forgings. Also known as high-performance alloys, superalloys represent a class
of materials known for superior resistance to corrosion and oxidation,
mechanical strength, and resistance to creep in elevated temperatures.
A particular superalloy is chosen based on the alloying elements
which produce certain properties.
. Copper is a reddish element that can be alloyed with other materials
to create characteristics of strength, hardness, impact resistance,
and more. Pure copper is easy to forge to due to its malleability.
. Resistant to corrosion and heat deformation, Inconel® is the
trademarked name for a group of nickel-based superalloys that also
contain varying amounts of chromium and iron. Inconel® resists
creep, stress rupture, thermal fatigue, and oxidation, which makes
it ideal for applications involving heaters, furnace components,
gas turbines, chemical processing, and more.
Invar® represents a group of iron-nickel alloys that are known
for controlled expansion properties. With a low thermal coefficient,
Invar® has low thermal expansion over a wide range of temperatures.
Ductile and resistant to stress corrosion cracking, Invar® has
a high level of strength.
. Monel® is an alloy of nickel and copper.
Resistant to corrosion and hardenable by heat treatment, Monel®
is used in marine applications and saltwater environments as well
as in chemical processing where it is exposed to a variety of corrosive
media such as acids.
