The forging technique has significantly advanced since it was originally used in the 12th century. Modern forging equipment dies and moulds can create various forged components. In ring-rolled forging, a thick, solid, round metal piece is punched to form a doughnut shape, which is then squeezed and compressed into a thin ring. Carbon steel forgings are forgings produced from one of the four types of steel.
Applications of Carbon Steel and Ring Rolled Forging
Carbon Steel Forging-

- Shafts and Gears
- Automobile sector
Ring Rolled Forging-
- Parts of boiler
- High-pressure piping
- Pump components
- Ring gaskets
Benefits of Carbon Steel and Ring Rolled Forging

The forged components made from this alloy are less expensive than those from many other alloys because the carbon steel forging technique uses the resources very sparingly.
These rings are produced for less money than comparable goods. In addition, as the rings closely mimic the finish shape’s contour, less machining is required.
|2. Complex applications:
Products made from carbon steel forgingare the best option for challenging applications like aircraft, oil rigs, etc., since they can tolerate severe resistance. In addition, the forged goods come in various sizes to meet the needs.
|2. Better heat tolerance:
Rolling rings respond to heat more predictably than other components. Users must use caution when applying heat to most other parts to avoid melting or other deformations.
|3. Variety of shapes:
The deployment of the forged components varies depending on the application’s requirements. Because carbon steel forgings are so flexible, making them in specific shapes like flanges, seamless rolling rings, blocks, etc., is simpler.
Because rolled rings must be produced at high temperatures, their grain pattern offers the metal greater strength and resilience than other parts.
|4. Metal grades:
When compared in terms of strength, wear resistance, and hardness, four distinct classes of carbon steel differ considerably. Other alloys are available in various grades, but none are as versatile as carbon steel.
Ring-rolled forgings retain their strength during extreme temperature changes better than other parts. Their incredible strength is one of the main characteristics that made them popular.
|5. Ecologically Beneficial:
Carbon steel is better for the environment than other materials as it is much more recyclable.
Any type of metal, including different copper alloys and high tensile strength stainless steel can create seamless rolled ring forged pieces.
By ensuring proper grain flow orientation during forging, fatigue resistance is maximised, and impact strength is increased. There is no minimum required percentage for the number of alloys that can be present in forged carbon steel. As a result, workpieces produced by the rolled ring forging technology have better densities and matched grain flows.
