Seamless Rolled Ring Forgings
Strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness are often some of the biggest concerns of any manufacturer. With an item like a seamless rolled ring forging, meeting all of these concerns is not only feasible, but also readily achievable. Rolled rings are very dynamic as they are adaptable to numerous industries, from power generation, transportation, and even paper making. This forging can be used for clutches, valves, couplings, and more.
Open Die Forging Process
Forged titanium, steel, and a variety of other metals are used to create seamless rolled ring forgings. With the open die roll forging process, the metal is transformed by continually hammering and manipulating the material into the desired forging size. Through using forging dies, the metal’s characteristics are restructured, allowing the final product to have a refined grain structure and heightened strength. A hole is punched into the forging stock, which is then placed into the ring mill. The seamless rolled ring’s diameter increases using three types of rolls: an idler roll, a driver roll, and two axial rolls. During the ring rolling process, the driver and idler rolls apply pressure to the inside and outside of the ring. While that occurs, the two axial rolls control its height. Once the required diameter is reached, the process is complete.
Benefits of Seamless Rolled Rings
Seamless rolled ring forgings are strong, durable, and long-lasting as a result of the open die forging process. Their aligned grain flow and minimized defects make these forgings more resilient in whatever industry they are used. Their durability leads to less breakdowns and downtime. The diameters of the rolled rings do not have to be machined or burned, allowing these items to be more cost-effective.
