Is Drop Forging the Best Solution for Steel Parts Production?

drop forging solutionQ: I have a drawing design for steel metal parts, and it is used for automotive application. Now i am wondering which process i should choose to use. Is drop forging best solution for steel parts production?

When we have such doubt or similar, just pls analyze the processes we may choose. Why use drop forging? 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 drop forged it is physically forced into shape while remaining in a solid state– although it is frequently heated. Below is our testing result on if drop forging is the best solution for steel parts production: 
  • Drop forged parts had a 26% higher tensile strength than the cast parts. This means you can have stronger steel parts at a lower part weight.
  • Drop forged parts have a 37% higher fatigue strength resulting in a factor of six longer fatigue life. This means that a forged steel part is going to last longer.
  • Cast iron only has 66% of the yield strength of forged steel. Yield strength is an indicator of what load a steel part will hold before starting to deform.
  • The drop forged parts had a 58% reduction in area when pulled to failure. The cast parts only had a 6% reduction in area.That means there would be much greater deformation before failure in a forged part.
Fortunately, all of our steel parts are drop forged, and they’re forged right here in China at our factory. Safer and made in China? I think that it will be a wise choice for you to do. Just take action and contact us for your drop forging needs. We will give you our best services with deep impression!
