In a recent Gear Solutions article, Scott Forge listed the advantages of using the forged metal working process to produce essential metal parts for maximum quality, cost effectiveness, and specialized performance.To produce forged steel rings, rolling mills are used to…
Applications of ANSI Long Weld Neck Flanges
Applications involving high pressure and the need for a hub that is long and tapered are what weld neck flanges are most often used for. Specifying the schedule of pipe that it will be utilized for is of utmost importance…
Tolerances in Rolled Ring Forging
The tolerance standards from the ASME recognize the problematic variances of seamless rolled rings in any process. These tolerances allow for slight differentiation in the products made by a forged rings manufacturer. In the seamless rolled ring forging process, there…
Do Materials Affect Strength and Durability in Long Weld Neck Flanges?
In long weld neck nozzle forging, better materials create a longer lasting stronger ready-to-install product that will be more effective, more resilient and more cost effective. The tendency for the long weld neck flanges to be a lighter structure calls…
