Forgings can be used in a variety of transportation industries–from the automotive and trucking industry to the aerospace industry. They provide the vehicle with the strength needed to endure many different environments, which can often be a challenge to meet.
Forging is the oldest metalworking method in human history. And while the basic concept of it hasn’t changed in thousands of years, forging techniques have significantly enhanced over time. Learn about the origins of forging from Ancient Egypt to its high-tech applications today.
Simply put—open die forging is the process of deforming a piece of metal using dies that do not fully enclose the material, while closed die forging exerts pressure to fill an enclosed die impression.
For years, CanForge has supplied the commercial and military aerospace industries with quality, high-performance forgings that remain strong and resilient under the most corrosive conditions. This blog provides an overview of the services that we continue to offer this growing industry!
At a basic level, tool steels are carbon and alloy steels that contain elements such as tungsten, molybdenum, and chromium. There are different grades of tool steels, each with a unique set of mechanical properties to achieve specific requirements for tool components.
Inconel® is a trademarked group of nickel alloys that are known for maintaining their reliability despite being exposed to strenuous conditions. Let’s explore what makes Inconel® a top choice for many of our forgings.
