The Advantages of Alloy Steel Forgings

CAlloy Steel ForgingsThe term super alloy refers to high-temperature, specific materials that combine nickel, iron and cobalt. Alloy steel forgings are a practical and economic choice. For example, imagine your manufacturing need is a particular shaped steel component that is shaped like a donut. With torch cutting methods, the corner stock and even the 'hole' in the donut are lost, even though you, the buyer, will pay for the wasted material. Alloy steel forgings from forging importers are shaped to specified sizes, so there is virtually no waste.

Whether you’re forging stainless steel or another type of casting, no gas pockets are produced in the forging process. Since you’re working with an item that is close to the finished size, less machining is needed. This of course, saves time, and in the long run puts less wear and tear on machinery.

Steel Stamping Applications

Although forging is a cost-effective method that produces especially strong and durable parts, steel stamping production allows products to be made out of tougher material than other processes. What's more, metal stamping dies cost less than other tooling.

What sort of applications can steel stamping be used for? All sorts! From sprocket blanks, spring seats, wheel or backing rings to engine bases. Deep drawn stamping can convert a flat sheet of metal into a three-dimensional shape.

Metals other than steel that are used for stamping include aluminum, zinc, nickel and titanium. There are no limits to how strong the end product can be. Contact to learn more about our metal fabricating today!
