Partnering with a full-service forger like Presrite means you won’t have to make dozens of calls looking for vendors, and instead will have a one stop vendor with the capability to deliver partially or fully finished forgings. When time is money, here are just a few ways the right forging partner can accelerate your parts to the finish line.
There are multiple bottom-line reasons for heat treating, from increased forging consistency to enhanced part performance. These processes are designed to improve steel’s metallurgical properties, such as increasing durability and machinability.
Heat treating techniques may include:
In some cases, heat treating steps can be eliminated with a special process called controlled conveyor cooling. After a forging comes hot off the press and is trimmed, it is slowly cooled as it moves through the conveyor and to its holding position. This process is ideal for parts and components that require more durability and less ductility.
A full-service forger like Presrite can apply multiple techniques to manipulate forgings to create custom features for specific machining requirements, such as drilling holes in crawler pads that can be assembled with pins.
Additional value-adding turnkey services may include:
To produce gears and other forgings that are close to finished products, steel impurities should be removed, such as the oxide flakes that can collect on the part. Full-service forgers can use a tumbler machine that uses centrifugal force to bounce “shot” off the parts. The forgings are shot blast cleaned until the steel surface is free of debris. This reduces contamination in the machining process.
Additional quality control procedures can ensure consistent part precision and performance. These measures may include:
