Carbo Forge provides steel forgings which offer certain distinct advantages over other applications.
Forging Strength - Grain flow assures superior strength, even at critical stress points. Tensile values in excess of 200,000 psi. High strength/weight ratios. Forging Impact Resistance - Excellent. Forging Surface Finish - Consistently excellent when machined. Forging Machinability - Dependable. Near absence of internal defects. No surface inclusions. Forging Dimensional Stability - Very high due to material uniformity and predictable heat-treatment response. Forging Design Flexibility - Generally short lead times. Highly predictable shaping process. Designs not limited to balanced shapes. Broad size ranges. Forging Production Factors – Low scrap, rejections rates. Simplified production. Some automated processes possible. Open-die and ring-rolling processes adapt to various production volumes. Readily fabricated. Ready to use without machining. Forging Process Controls – Consistent part uniformity. Fewer process variables. Predictable heat-treatment response. Forging Quality Controls – Simplified inspection procedures. Consistent integrity, part to part.
