  • The Surprising Presence of Forged Carbon Steel

    The four grades of forged carbon steel low carbon, medium carbon, high carbon, and very high carbon have numerous applications, some of which I found rather surprising. For example, I knew that stainless steel had been used in multiple kitchen utensils, but I was not aware that forged carbon steel is also a popular kind of metal companies use to make knives. Knives made from forged carbon steel are extremely durable, so they are ideal for many uses in the kitchen. Something else I found surprising is that forged carbon...

  • Carbon Steel Forging: Making the Grade

    There are a lot of metals that can be used for forging. Aluminum, brass, and steel are among the more popular metals used. A variation of steel forging is called carbon steel forging, where a metal that is a mixture of carbon and steel is hammered or pressed into different shapes and then applied in a range of industries. The carbon steel used in carbon steel forgings is available in mainly four different grades. These are low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, high carbon steel, and very high carbon steel....

Carbon Steel Forgings

Carbon steel forgings are created through the metallurgical process of forging, in which carbon steel is given a particular shape by the application of a strong compressive force. The metal forging method creates the strongest and most reliable carbon steel products available by deforming the grain of the metal to take on the shape of the part. Carbon steel is a ferrous alloy whose main alloying element is carbon, but it can also contain limited amounts of copper, manganese and silicon. The carbon gives the steel greater hardness and strength, particularly when the steel is heat treated.

Carbon steel is quite malleable, and therefore is easily processed and readily forged. Its varied response to heat treatment also lends it a sort of versatility, with different processing yielding steel with different mechanical properties. The low material cost, adaptability, great strength, and ease of manufacturing of carbon steel forgings have made them prevalent in a variety of industries, including the military, construction, aircraft, aerospace, mining, automotive, chemical, railway, oil and gas, marine, trucking, and defense industries. Carbon steel forgings are the most common type of forgings in use, serving as industrial components such as blocks, blanks, bars, hubs, disks, flanges, spindles, cylinders, shafts, rings, piping parts and more. Carbon steel forgings are effective in temperatures up to 900°F (482°C).

The carbon steel forging process gives the metal a dense, sophisticated structure that enhances the strength and mechanical properties of the steel while slightly reducing its size. Most often carbon steel forgings are created by heating a cast or extruded piece of steel and then using a large hammer or press that forces it to take the shape of a die. The metal is never melted or poured, as in metal casting. Instead the forging process uses intense pressure to cause the metal to flow into the desired shape. Hot forging is a very adaptable method, capable of forming all sizes and any sort of shape using either and open or a closed die. Larger quantities from 25 pounds up to 25 tons are always forged hot. Cold forging and warm forging are alternate forging techniques in which small quantities of carbon steel ranging from room temperature to a few hundred degrees Fahrenheit are hammered or pressed into a die. Cold forging and warm forging create an even stronger forged product by a process known as work hardening, in which slight alterations are made in the crystalline structure of the metal to conform to the shape of the part. Whatever the forging method, carbon steel forgings make for high-integrity and cost-effective mechanical and industrial components.
