The Top 3 Issues Forged Rings Solves Compared to Traditional Manufacturing Methods

Most problems found in metal rings can be attributed to their manufacturing process. Rings that are created through the casting process lack strength and are more likely to break under heavy strain.

Rolling, welding or cutting rings from metal plates can also result in defects and lack of tensile strength in the rings. These manufacturing processes create rings that are more likely to break under heavy pressure. Rolling, welding and cutting rings also carries excessive costs and wastes metal material in the manufacturing process. Switching to a metal forging process can rectify many problems associated with metal rings.

Ring Processing Issue #1

Rings produced by casting failed acoustic requirements specified by the client. They also had to be welded and machined at considerable extra cost to meet connectivity requirements. Furthermore, the extensive welding and machining done to the cast rings made the rings weaker, less resistant to corrosion and altered the original ring shape.

Forged Rings As An Alternative

A forged rings manufacturer provides an ideal solution to the problems outlined above. Forged steel rings do not have their shape altered, and retain their resistance to corrosion because no welding or machining takes place during the manufacturing process. Rings created using a forged process also have superior strength, due to a directional grain flow.

Ring Processing Issue #2

Cast rings lack strength and have high upkeep costs. Their lack of strength also results in a reduced lifespan and rings breaking.

Forged Rings As An Alternative

Forged steel rings are more durable, and their grain pattern reduces the risk of breakage under heavy strain.

Ring Processing Issue #3

Cast and rolled and welded rings from plates waste lots of materials in the manufacturing process. Some sizes of rings and shapes are difficult to produce using these methods and may be less than satisfactory.

Forged Rings As An Alternative

A forged rings manufacturer can easily produce custom size rings that meet specifications such as thickness and shape of the customers with minimal waste. Imperfections are also eliminated such as pores and punctures that are common in welded and cut ring processes.
