Forging

SGS Certification Specialty Ring Products

By combining our material and design experience with industry-leading facilities, SRP is able to forge seamless rolled rings and disks with the structural integrity needed to meet the most demanding customer specifications.  One key is a forging process that orients the grain flow circumferentially, providing superior fatigue and impact resistance.  We press, pierce, roll, and heat treat on site to simplify the ordering process and keep costs low.
