Rolled ring forging is a process that works with several different materials, all with their own advantages.
For example, aluminum forgings are useful in applications requiring light weight metals. Titanium is known for its strength and resistance to heat and corrosion. You’ll find these same qualities when working with stainless steel, and see them magnified after forging.
Rolled ring forging is a process that starts with a circular metal preform that has been pierced to form a doughnut shape. The ring is heated and rotated to reduce its wall thickness and increase its diameter.
At Specialty Ring Products, we’ve spent decades developing precision machining capabilities that allow us to offer one-stop services, thus reducing our customers’ overhead and production down-time.
We undertake stringent quality assurance and precision testing before we ship, to ensure parts work seamlessly with the rest of your production line.
Each machined part goes through a thorough inspection prior to shipping to ensure that it meets required tolerances.
Our precision manual machining equipment includes:
- Large and small engine lathes
- Bridgeport Mills
- Surface Grinders
- Marvel Band Saw
- DoAll Band Saw
And because we have cultivated long-term relationships in aerospace and other fields that require high stress applications, Specialty Ring Products has developed expertise working with a wide variety of materials, including:
- Bearing Grade Steels (M-50, 52100)
- Stainless Steel (Ferritic, Martensitic, Austenitic, 17-4 PH)
- Exotic Alloys (Inconel, Waspaloy, Hastelloy X)
We can machine parts up to a 32-inch diameter, and can maintain close tolerances of 0.001” on parts under a 15-inch diameter. Whether you require a single piece or a 1,000-unit order, we can meet your machining needs. Contact us today to find out more how we can help you complete your next project.
