  • We are manufacturing a wide range of optimum quality forgings & shafts which include rolled ring, die blocks, square blocks, rectangular and circular blocks and machined components. We produce forged bars (round, square, flat, hex) in various materials such as stainless steel, nickel alloys, carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminium, titanium and copper nickel. The maximum length for forged round bars and hex bars is 5000 mm, with a maximum weight of 18000 kgs. The maximum length and width for flat bars and square bars is 1500mm, with a maximum weight of 25000 kgs.
  • A forged bar or a rolled bar is produced by taking an ingot and forging it down to size by, generally, two opposing flat dies. Forging offers uniformity of composition and structure. Forging results in metallurgical recrystalisation and grain refinement as a result of the thermal cycle and deformation process. This strengthens the resulting steel product particularly in terms of impact and shear strength. Forged steel is generally stronger and more reliable than castings and plate steel due to the fact that the grain flows of the steel are altered, conforming to the shape of the part. We are an industry leading forging manufacturer and guarantee that the forgings and/or bars are homogenous in quality and free of any kind of defects, which can be tested by destructive or non destructive process.
  • At Metallica, forgings are manufactured by following a stringent quality control program and standards which assure good surface and close dimensional tolerances.

Forgings, Rings, Blocks Manufacturing Process

  1. – We are producing forged discs in size range of 2″ to 100″ diameter, and individual weights up to 25000 KGS. Forged discs are manufactured by working or pressing of heated material between the upper and lower dies. They are generally produced by the open die forging process and exhibit better grain structure, superior strength, ductility, and resistance to impact and fatigue as compared to discs cut from plate or bar stock. Forged disks can be forged with grain flow to best suit the final parts applications.
  2. Forged BarsA forged bar or a rolled bar is produced by taking a heated ingot and sizing it between two opposing flat dies. We specialize in producing all types of forged bar shapes such as Round bars, Square bars, Flat bars and Hex bars in stainless steel, alloy steel, carbon steel and special alloys. The producing process for all types of forgings involves loading the materials in furnace followed by heating. When the temperature reaches 1100℃, metal will be forged. In the forging process the heated metal is shaped by using one or more dies. During the forging or rolling process if the temperature of metal falls to 850℃, metal will be heated again. Then the hot working process is repeated at that elevated temperature (1100℃). We can offer all types of forged bars in annealed, tempered or quenched and tempered condition, as per customer requirements.
  3. Forged Blocks – Forged blocks are of higher quality than plate due to the block having forging reduction on all sides of the shape, if required. This leads to a refined grain structure, assuring that quality of material. The maximum forged block dimensions depend on material grade. We can produce larger size blocks in carbon steel. In stainless steel, large size forged blocks can be in size upto 750mm x 750mm in variable lengths. In carbon and alloy steel we can produce forged blocks upto 1500mm size.
  4. Forged Rings – Seamless forged rings can be formed by rolling or piercing a forged block. Large size seamless rolled or forged rings can be produced in outside diameter upto 2500mm.
  5. Seamless Forged Hollows – Forged hollow bars can be produced in unlimited variations of OD and ID and length as per customer requirements. Seamless forged hollows are ideal for high-stress applications. All the processes including heat treatment, machining and mechanical and non-destructive testing are carried out and can be agreed upon at the time of order.

What is the difference between forgings and castings? ›

Forging and casting are two very different manufacturing methods. When something is cast, the material is heated above its melting temperature and poured into a mold where it solidifies. When something is forged it is physically forced into shape while remaining in a solid state – although it is frequently heated.

What are forgings in manufacturing? ›

Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of a metal through hammering, pressing, or rolling. These compressive forces are delivered with a hammer or die. Forging is often categorized according to the temperature at which it is performed—cold, warm, or hot forging. A wide range of metals can be forged.

What are forgings used for? ›

The purpose of forging is to create metal parts. Compared to other manufacturing methods, metal forging produces some of the sturdiest manufactured parts available. As metal is heated and pressed, minor cracks are sealed, and any empty spaces in the metal close.

What are the advantages of forgings? ›

By dispersing segregation of alloys or nonmetallics, forging provides superior chemical uniformity. Predictable structural integrity reduces part inspection requirements, simplifies heat treating and machining, and ensures optimum part performance under field-load conditions.

What is cheaper casting or forging? ›

Casting is often much cheaper than forging. Both casting and forging have their advantages and disadvantages, so the better method depends upon what is being fabricated.

Are forged irons better than cast? ›

Forged irons are thought to be more of a player's club. Since this is a more traditional iron and has been around for many years, the forged iron gets a better name than the cast iron. In reality, cast irons are going to be almost as good as a forged iron in the modern golf world.

What are the three main types of forging? ›

There are basically three methods (or processes) to make a forged part.
  • Impression Die Forging.
  • Cold Forging.
  • Open Die Forging.
  • Seamless Rolled Ring Forging.

Which of the following metals is not ideal for forging? ›

The carbon percentage of cast iron is around 4.2 wt%, which is the soluble limit of carbon in iron. As a result, while cast iron is resistant to wear, it is very fragile and cannot be forged.

Is cold forging the strongest? ›

Cold forging improves the strength of the metal by hardening it at room temperature. Hot forging results in optimal yield strength, low hardness, and high ductility by hardening the metal at extremely high temperatures.

How can you tell if a cast is forged? ›

The best and most sure method for recognizing a forged crank is to look for the parting lines on the counterweights. A forged piece will have a wide, irregular rough patch. A cast component (shown) will have a very sharp, well-defined line where the mold was separated.

What handicap should you be to use blades? ›

In general, you should only consider using blades if you have a handicap under 10.

Do forged irons hit further? ›

The clubhead of a forged iron has additional weight in the center. This higher and smaller sweet spot teaches you to hit more consistently. The construction is more consistent and refined than on cast irons.

Do forged irons wear out faster? ›

Forged irons use softer steel than cast irons, but unless you're playing golf multiple times per week, the average player won't notice much different in terms of longevity. While both are manufactured to be high quality, forged irons are purer than cast irons and, in theory, should last longer.

What is the name of forging tool? ›

The types of forging tools include anvil, chisel, tong, fuller, hammer, press, die, flatter, punch and drift, swage, swage block, clamping vice, and hearth.

What are the two types of forging? ›

Forging is often classified according to the temperature at which it is performed: cold forging (a type of cold working), warm forging, or hot forging (a type of hot working). For the latter two, the metal is heated, usually in a forge.

What are the two basic types of forging equipment? ›

What are the two basic types of forging equipment? The two types of forging machines are hammers, which impact the workpart, and presses, which apply a gradual pressure to the work.

Who invented forging? ›

Blacksmithing origins first trace back to 1500 BC when the Hittites discovered the process of forging and tempering iron ore. When the Hittites were scattered in 1200 BC so was their knowledge and understanding of basic iron work.

What products are made from forging? ›

Forged has traditionally been the mark of quality in hand tools and hardware. Pliers, hammers, sledges, wrenches and garden tools, as well as wire-rope clips, sockets, hooks, turnbuckles and eye bolts are common examples. Surgical and dental instruments are also often forged.

Where can you find forgings? ›

caps, camshafts, rocker arms, valves, gears, shafts, levers, and linkages. Outboard motors, motorcycles, and power saws offer examples of the intensive use of forgings in smaller engines. Industrial equipment industries use forgings in materials handling systems, conveyors, chain-hoist assemblies, and lift trucks.

What is scale in forging? ›

Hammerscale, also written hammer scale, is a flaky or spheroidal byproduct of the iron forging process (for modern equivalent, see mill scale). Hammerscale is almost universally recovered from archaeological excavations in areas where iron ore was refined and forged.

What is metal forging process? ›

Can Aluminium be forged? ›

Forging of Aluminum Alloys. Aluminum is forged at a much lower temperature than any other common metal because of its low melting point. The low density of aluminum contributes to its low capacity to retain heat. Thus, hot tooling is necessary to avoid rapid cooling of the workpiece.

What is the difference between a forge and a foundry? ›

A foundry melts metals in special furnaces to be cast into molds. A forge is a furnace or hearth where metals are heated prior to hammering them into shape. The act of forging is heating and hammering metal into a shape.

Is forged steel heavier than cast? ›

Since castings start out as liquid molten metal, it can flow into nearly any shape or size if there is a mold that matches. Another consideration pertains to the weight of the parts. If there are two identical parts, one made by casting and one by forging, the casting will usually be lighter than the forging.

Does folding a blade make it stronger? ›

To avoid breaking a blade, the layers of metal must balance flexibility and strength to create a sword that will bend instead of breaking. Japanese steel folding encourages quenching in oil or water between folding to change the hardness of the steel at different stages.

Why do blacksmiths pound and hit the iron? ›

Blacksmiths hit the anvil between strikes to keep momentum and rhythm up. It allows them to keep a steady rhythm with the hammer while planning out their next move, readjusting their grip, or flipping the hot item over. These light taps can also help when their hands become tired.

Does steel weaken with age? ›

cheers, adam s. Steel, just as with all physical objects, does indeed weaken with usage. The more stress it recieves, the more damage it develops. Usually the damage is in the form of microscopic fractures and stress points.

What is difference between casting and Moulding? ›

The main difference between molding and casting is the use of the material in the process. Casting will typically involve metal, while molding focuses on plastics. In both cases, the melted material goes into a die or mold to create the final form.

What's better forged or cast crankshaft? ›

But tensile strength is only one part of the picture. A forged-steel crank has an elongation rating of 20-22 percent before failure--far greater than cast iron, so ductility is the forged crank's real advantage over cast iron.

Is foundry and casting same? ›

In simplified terms, a foundry is a factory where castings are produced by melting metal, pouring liquid metal into a mold, then allowing it to solidify. Even if you have never been to a foundry, or even know what one looks like, you are surrounded by the metal castings they produce.

What is the difference between forging and foundry? ›

After pouring the molten metal in the mould, it is left undisturbed till it solidifies. After solidification, we can make the appliances of desired shapes and sizes. On the other hand, Forge is a manufacturing process of giving desired shapes to the heated metal by using compressive forces like beating with a hammer.
