Drop Forged Track Links for Forest Machine Tracks

Forest machine tracks are the tracks to suit almost all cut-to-length forestry machines and skidders. Forest machinery tracks are manufactured from special boron alloy steel. The durability and toughness of the steel is maximised using specialised induction heating processes. Specifically designed and manufactured steel sections and forgings are used to give high performance combined with the longest possible working life. Each set of tracks has been manufactured for use with a particular tyre.

Forged links and track plate end links are available in a range of sizes for the repair of all types and sizes of tracks. They are manufactured from heat treated boron alloy steel for strength and hardness, resulting in a durable, hard wearing link.

Drop forging is a metal forming process performed at high or ambient temperature. Drop forging of track links is a steel shaping process whereby a heated steel billet is placed on a lower die mould block, while an overhead, die-equipped ram hammer drives or “drops” down, forcing the metal to fill the contours of the two die blocks. Forging on a drop hammer is carried out in a succession of die impressions using repeated blows. The quality of the forging, and the economy and productivity of the hammer process depend upon the tooling and the skill of the operator.

The closed die drop forging process can create track links that are stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process. This is why forgings are almost always used for forest machine tracks.

CFS Forge can customize all sizes of track links, lockings or other forged track accessories from client's drawing or sample. The forged material can be 42CrMo (AISI 4140) alloy steel. After forging, heat treatment is recommended to increase the hardness of track links, thus to improve the working performance and longer the serving life. Before delivery, the engineering department in CFS will inspect the quality one by one strictly, so there is no need to worry about any quality issue once ordering forgings from our drop forging company.
