The Characteristics of Forging Workshop—Part Two

The working force of forging equipment is great, such as crank press, stretch forging press and hydraulic press. Although their working conditions are relatively stable, the force generated by their working parts is great. For example, 12000t forging hydraulic press has been manufactured and used in China. It is the common 100~150t press, whose power is big enough. If the mold is installed or operated incorrectly, most of the force will not act on the workpiece, but on the mold, tool or equipment...

Casting and Forging Adopt Two Different Processing Techniques

Foundry is to change shapeless molten metal into a shaped solid. A cast valve is a valve made by casting. Forging is mainly formed by extrusion at high temperature. It can refine the grains in the manufactured parts. Forged valves are forged out. Types of forging: Classified by deformation temperature: When the temperature exceeds 300-400℃ (blue brittle zone of steel) and reaches 700-800℃, the deformation resistance will decrease sharply and the deformation energy will be greatly...

How to Increase Production of Forged Valves

As is known to all, the manufacture of forged valves is more difficult than that of cast valves. The specific reason is that cast valves can often be manufactured on a large scale, while forged valves need a certain time to be forged out. However, it can be clearly seen that the performance of forged valves is better in some aspects, which has prompted manufacturers to come up with the idea of increasing the output of forged valves. In fact, the way to increase the production of forged...
