  • A Crash-Course in Alloys for the Metallically Challenged

    What exactly is an alloy? How are alloys made? Where are they used? This is everything you need to know in a simple guide. When people outside the engineering and forging community hear the term “metal alloy,” they might be tempted to scrunch up their faces, say “huh?” and move on to something more interesting, like the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl win. But we encounter metal alloys every day – in everything from jewelry to cookware to dental fillings to door locks to flatware and medical devices. So,...

Industry Information

Forging Rings

Forging is a manufacturing tradition that dates back millennia. It involves the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces. Such forces range widely, from the basic hammer to twenty-first century hydraulics. One of the many, many shapes produced through forging is the ring. Modern forged rings have many uses, such as parts for machine tools, aerospace applications, turbines and pipe and pressure systems. These rings are usually forged with stainless steel, tool steel, aluminum, copper, steel alloy or the like.

Using one method of forging, a stock is first cut to length, upset and then pierced through the middle to create a hole in the center. (The process of upsetting decreases the metal’s length and increases its cross-section.) After being pierced, the piece is placed on a mandrel or saddle, where the shape is formed by the up and down motion of a forging die. The forging die hammers the metal from above, as the work is rotated incrementally in a series of steps meant to eventually achieve the ring’s final size.

Another method of forging rings is called roll forging. In roll forging, a round or flat bar is increased in length and decreased in thickness through the use of two cylindrical or semi-cylindrical rolls, each containing one or more shaped grooves. A heated bar is inserted into the rolls, which rotate when the bar hits a certain spot, progressively shaping the bar as it rolls. The bar is then inserted into the next set of grooves, or returned to the same grooves, where the process repeats. This goes on until the intended shape and size of the piece is achieved. The process of ring rolling produces seamless rings.

Forging rings, compared to casting or machining them, is an expensive and laborious process. However, forging rings can still be advantageous because the work produced will have superior strength. This superior strength exists because its grain is continuous, due to the fact that, as the metal is shaped during the forging process, its grain deforms to adapt the general shape of the piece. Furthermore, a ring that is not forged runs the risk of compromised corrosion resistance and shape distortion, and it may require more repair down the line. For a ring that will stand the test of time, forging is the way to go.
