A forged disc is made by upsetting or standing preheated piece of raw material on end and forging it between the upper and lower dies. The upset process induces directional grain flow, which gives strength, ductility and increased resistance to impact and fatigue not found in plate or bar stock.
Forged discs are used for a variety of general industrial equipment and machinery used by the steel, power generation and power transmission industries. Some of the common uses for our forged discs are blind flanges, tubesheets, gears, etc. for the oil field and automotive applications.
