What is a Forging? What is a Forged Steel?

Forging is the application of thermal and mechanical energy to steel billets or ingots to cause the material to change shape while in a solid state using high pressure, either by striking it with a hammer or by pressing it with a die. The material is often heated beforehand in order to make forging easier, but it remains solid throughout the process. Kitchen knives and other knife blades are typical examples of products made via forging. Since steel can either be forged or cast, manufacturers usually specify the actual material grade and type as “cast steel” or “forged steel” to clarify which process was utilized. Austenitic Stainless Steel is considered to be “friendly” in forging terms

What are the Applications of Forging?

Forging offers uniformity of composition and structure. Forging results in metallurgical recrystallization and grain refinement as a result of the thermal cycle and deformation process. This strengthens the resulting steel product particularly in terms of impact and shear strength. Forged steel is generally stronger and more reliable than castings and plate steel due to the fact that the grain flows of the steel are altered, conforming to the shape of the part.

What are the Advantages of Forging?

  • Generally tougher than alternatives
  • Will handle impact better than castings
  • The nature of forging excludes the occurrence of porosity, shrinkage, cavities and cold pour issues.
  • The tight grain structure of forgings making it mechanically strong. There is less need for expensive alloys to attain high strength components.
  • The tight grain structure offers great wear resistance without the need to make products “superhard” We have found that, on a blank HRC 38-42 forged grinder insert wear/wash is about the same as a high alloy HRC 46-50 cast grinder insert. The difference being a HRC 46-50 casting does not have the ductility to handle high impact grinding.

What are the Processes for Forging?

  1. Impression Die Forging or Closed Die Forging
  2. Cold Forging
  3. Open Die Forging
  4. Seamless Rolled Ring Forging
  5. Upset Forging or Upsetting
  6. Piercing
  7. Precision Forging
  8. Trimming, Punching, Coining and Ironing
  9. Extrusion

What are the Equipment used in Forging?

The equipment used to produce forgings varies with respect to the forging processes which can be carried out:
• The method of applying the force.
• The size.
The different types of forging equipment include:
• Hammers
• Presses
• Upsetters
• Forging Rolls
• Ring Rollers
• Swaging Machines

How to Determine Whether Forging or Casting to be Done?

  • Steel products may be manufactured either by casting or forging steel. Steel casting is the process by which a metal is heated until it reaches a liquid state and then poured into a mold that shapes the desired product. In Steel forging method, steel is physically forced into shape while remaining in a solid state – although it is frequently heated.
    • Forged parts had a 26% higher tensile strength than the cast parts. This means you can have stronger shackles at a lower part weight. The reason behind is when you melt metal to cast it, the grain size is free to expand. When it cools back to a solid, the grain structure is courser and more random, decreasing its strength.
    • Forged parts have a 37% higher fatigue strength resulting in a factor of six longer fatigue lives. This means that a forged shackle is going to last longer.
    • Cast steel only has 66% of the yield strength of forged steel. Yield strength is an indicator of what load a shackle will hold before starting to deform.
    • The forged parts had a 58% reduction in area when pulled to failure. The cast parts only had a 6% reduction in area. That means there would be much greater deformation before failure in a forged part.

What are the Strengths and Weaknesses of Forging and Casting?

What is the Impact of Various Alloying Elements on the Properties of Stainless Steel?

Element Effect on Stainless Steel
Chromium Forms a passive film with oxygen that prevent the further diffusion of oxygen into the surface
Composition needs to contain at least 10.5% to be a stainless steel
Nickel Increases ductility and toughness. Increase corrosion resistance to acids
Additon creates non-magnetic structure
Molybdenum Increases pitting and crevice corrosin resistance. Increase resistance to chlorides
Copper Increase corrosion resistance to sulfuric acid
Manganese Substitute for nickel (200 series)
Titanium/Niobium Ties up carbon and prevents inter-granular corrosion in welded zone of ferritic grades
Nitrogen Increase strength and corrosion resistance in austenitic and duplex grades
Silicon Improves resistance to high temperature scaling
Sulfur Usually kept low excet for “free-machining” grades
Carbon Usually kept low.  Used in martensitic grades to increase strength and hardness

What are the Steel Pipe Sizes?

Steel pipe sizes

Pipe size is quoted as a “Nominal Pipe Size” or NPS. The origin of the NPS numbers for smaller pipes (< NPS 12) is different to the origin for larger diameter pipes. However, all pipes of a specific NPS number have the same external or outer diameter (OD). The internal diameter will vary depending on the wall thickness of the metal. The reason for this is so that the same structural supports can be used for all piping of a specific NPS number regardless of the wall thickness.

Schedules

Steel pipe schedules are a way to describe the wall thickness of the pipe. This is a critical parameter as it is directly related to the strength of the pipe and the suitability for specific applications. A pipe schedule is a dimensionless number and is calculated based on the design formula for wall thickness, given the design pressure and allowable stress.

Examples of schedule numbers are as follows: 5, 5S, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, STD, XS, and XXS—with the most common being schedules 40 and 80. As the schedule number increases, the wall thickness of the pipe increases. The schedule number of a pipe therefore defines the internal diameter, as the OD is fixed by the NPS number.

The following are typical parameters that may be recorded on an MTR:

  • Chemical composition including carbon content, alloys, and sulfur
  • Material size, weight, identification, and grade
  • Material heat number, which ties back to the processing batch
  • Mechanical properties like tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation
