The steel forging products are widely used for auto-car parts, truck parts, train parts, vehicle components, construction machinery components, other machinery components, etc.
We provide strategic sourcing for custom steel forgings manufactured to meet your exact design requirements. Our forging sources produce high quality, high precision steel forgings for numerous industries, from construction to automotive and everything in between.
Custom Forging Capabilities
Depending on the demands of your part designs, products can be hot forged or cold headed. Hot forging is ideal for larger parts and applications where optimum yield strength, high ductility, and a better surface quality are preferred. Cold heading is better suited to producing smaller parts and components, and the process automatically work-hardens the material, resulting in high strength products.
We are also capable of providing 100% magnetic inspection for forged products. Magnetic inspection is a non-destructive testing (NDT) process that utilizes magnetization to detect fractures, surface and near-surface discontinuities, and other imperfections in forged ferromagnetic materials. Because they concentrate stresses that can lead to further damage and failure, detecting surface and near-surface defects is of critical importance for forged metal products.
Hot Forging & Cold Heading
We can provide both hot forging and cold heading to meet the forging needs of nearly any industry or application. As needed, we will work with you to determine the best forging method for your unique project.
Hot forging is the preferred method for creating parts and components for more rugged applications, such as construction and automotive manufacturing. The hot forging process improves the yield strength, ductility, and toughness of the material, making for more durable parts. Our offshore forging sources can hot forge a wide range of metals and alloys.
Cold heading is ideal for producing smaller, more intricate parts and components, like those found in medical devices or electronics. Cold heading utilizes high speed, automated equipment to create perfectly repeatable, high precision parts. We can cold head forge numerous metals and specialty alloys.
Benefits of Forging
Forged parts exhibit very high strength. The high pressure required to forge steel parts compresses the material and gives it a very dense and refined grain structure that conforms to the part’s shape. This increases the steel’s tensile strength and improves its resistance to impact and abrasion.
Forging also allows for adherence to very close tolerances. The dies used in the forging process result in precise part dimensions with minimal part to part variation. Our offshore sources utilize forging dies that are custom-made to match customer specifications.
Because they are free of internal voids, gas pockets, and cooling defects that can cause undue fatigue or impact load failure, custom forged steel parts are ideal for high load, high stress applications.
We are capable of producing durable, high strength forgings from an array of mid-range carbon steel materials. Medium carbon steel provides excellent ductility and strength, and is known for its long-wearing properties. This material is popular for bolts, shafts, car axles, rails, and other parts and components that require high strength and a certain degree of flexibility.
Available steel grades include, but are not limited to:
1035, 1038, 1040, 1045, 1050, 1117
A number of other grades are available upon request.
