Forging Stainless Steel: Benefits and Advantages
If you’re looking for durable products for agricultural, automotive, construction or other industries, find out why you should consider forged stainless steel products from Trenton Forging. Forging stainless steel offers a number of benefits and advantages that may make all the difference for your business. Here are just a few perks you can enjoy when you choose closed die forging services from Trenton.
Advantages of Forging Stainless Steel
If you have a forging project and aren’t sure which material to use, consider the benefits of forged stainless steel. Stainless steel is one of the most common materials we work with. Our forging process includes gravity-drop style hammers and a closed-impression die combined with heat and pressure to improve the natural durability of stainless steel. 300 series, or austenitic, stainless steel is recommended for a clean, dependable project. Other series of stainless steel can also be used for a variety of unique features.
The forging process is highly refined and requires multiple steps. From raw material procurement and tool creation to heat treating and final inspection, we spend the necessary time to create a product that will last longer and perform better. We form products using closed die forging to reduce much of the post-processing time and effort. This allows us to offer you the benefits of forged stainless steel with a more efficient timeline. Prevent excess material waste and downtime by working with a leader in efficient forging. At Trenton Forging, we use only the highest quality stainless steel to provide excellent machining capabilities, improved heat resistance, increased corrosion resistance and a protective oxide layer so you get unmatched results. Compare our industry-leading forging process with our competitors to see for yourself how you can benefit from working with Trenton.
Compared to other alloys, forged stainless steel is easier to machine. This feature allows you to create the precision components you need for your industry. This durable alloy also holds up well under extreme sanitation requirements. If your defense, agriculture or other industry components need to go through a series of sanitizing or cleaning routines, stainless steel is an ideal option.
We create innovative parts for precision engineering. Once you design the perfect component for your equipment or for sale, we create accurate dies to mass-produce your unique component.
Improved Heat Resistance
Forging stainless steel improves its heat resistance. This property is critical for automotive components and other products that experience high temperatures for prolonged periods of time. Create components that can withstand extreme temperatures without deforming or losing its structural integrity through our dependable forging process. Heat resistance is essential for high-friction and high-heat applications. Automotive components, tooling and chemical processing components may all be subjected to extreme heat, so you need components that won’t become deformed or crack under the intense heat.
Increased Corrosion Resistance
Corrosive components can quickly degrade other materials. Don’t compromise the quality of your components by introducing alloys to corrosive materials without the proper protection. Forging stainless steel with our innovative closed die forging techniques increases the corrosion resistance of the alloy. Use forged stainless steel to create valves, pumps and other products for petrochemical or marine equipment.
Oxide Layer Protection
Extend the lifespan of your components with our stainless steel forging process that creates a protective oxide layer that works to keep your components operating through harsh conditions. Forging stainless steel reduces the risk of stress cracking, pitting, deformation, crevice corrosion and other factors that would otherwise compromise the structural integrity of your workpieces.
