Carbon Steel Drop Forgings

Carbon steel is steel in which the main interstitial alloying constituent is carbon in the range of 0.12–2.0% along with varying quantities of other elements such as tungsten, cobalt, and chromium. Generally in defining carbon steel, no minimum or maximum concentrations are quoted for these elements, although it is accepted that stainless steel does not qualify. In other words, concentrations of both the primary carbon and secondary alloying elements may be adjusted to suit the intended end purpose of the steel. For example, increasing the carbon content of the alloy increases its hardness while decreasing its ductility. Drop Forging is one of the oldest metal forming methods and involves repetitive manual or powered impact to force red hot steel into a certain shape. The metal is heated in medium frequency furnace and shaped between the two halves of dies to achieve its final form.

The term carbon steel drop forging represents two kinds of key words for a metal part, namely carbon steel and drop forging. Carbon steel refers to the material of steel forgings, while drop forging means the production process, which is widely used to manufacture parts for better quality instead of casting, fabrication or machining process for its unique advantages, making the parts well-suited to high temperature and pressure applications. Some common carbon steel drop forgings are applied in construction machinery, oilfield industry,etc.

Carbon steel drop forgings are usually believed to be superior to those made by other methods. This is due to the fact that the hammering of the metal during forming eliminates most of the microscopic crystalline flaws, such as air bubbles and fissures, which characterize cast parts. This structural integrity makes carbon steel drop forgings stronger and better-suited to applications that involve high pressures and temperatures. This strength makes these forgings ideal for oil and gas piping systems, machinery parts, and the internal mechanisms of high-pressure valve fittings.

In addtion to stainless steel drop forgings, CFS Forge could make carbon steel drop forgings range from 0.2kg-30g with drop forging process. Main material specifications of carbon steel used are 20#, 35#, 45#, A105, Q235, 20CrMnTi, etc. Any enquiry, pls feel free to contact us.
