• Ring rolling forging: Optimal Wear Solutions for Increased Durability

Ring rolling forging

Ring rolling is a specialised forging process used to produce seamless rings with enhanced structural integrity and granular refinement. It is commonly employed in the aerospace, automotive, and heavy machinery industries. This method involves the incremental reduction of a hollow ring’s thickness while simultaneously increasing its diameter. The demanding conditions of ring rolling expose tools and machinery to severe wear challenges such as thermal fatigue, abrasion, and mechanical stresses.

Our Solutions for Enhancing Wear Resistance in Ring Rolling

Welding Alloys offers a comprehensive range of solutions designed to extend the life and functionality of machinery used in ring rolling. Our offerings are tailored to combat the distinct wear challenges faced in this forging process.

Our cored wires dedicated to forging applications include:

  • Nickel Based Alloys: These alloys are essential for their high-temperature strength and corrosion resistance, making them ideal for the high-stress conditions encountered in ring rolling. Products such as STELLOY NI520-G provide excellent resistance to thermal shock and wear.
  • Cobalt Based Alloys: Known for their superior thermal fatigue resistance, cobalt-based alloys like STELLOY 25-G maintain their performance under extreme conditions, offering outstanding hardness and resistance to abrasive wear.
  • Advanced Tool Steels: Alloys like HARDFACE 55WCO are specifically engineered to resist cracking and wear, crucial for the longevity of tools in ring rolling applications.

In addition to consumables, we provide automated welding machines and engineered wear services (Integra) to facilitate efficient maintenance and repair, significantly reducing downtime and extending the service life of forging equipment.
