Are Forgings Stronger than Castings and Weldments?
For centuries, metal manufacturing processes have been relied on by a number of industries. From transportation and power generation to valves and pipeline equipment, metal manufacturing processes like casting, forging, and welding. In today’s blog, we’ll compare these three popular metal processes and discuss how forging remains unmatched.

Why Choose Rolled Rings
At CanForge, we produce a wide variety of high-quality forgings for a whole host of demanding and sophisticated engineering applications. In today’s blog, we’ll be discussing the many functions of rolled rings, how they’re manufactured and why CanForge’s seamless rolled rings always come out on top.
Monel®: the nickel-copper alloy with excellent corrosion resistance
At CanForge, we produce forgings for the most demanding and sophisticated industries. One of the superior materials we utilize at Canada Forgings Inc is Monel®. In today’s blog, we’ll explore what makes Monel® a top choice for many of our forgings.
Spotlight On the Pulp and Paper Industry
With graphic paper demand declining worldwide, the pulp and paper industry has been undergoing quite a transformation. The industry is growing in other directions thanks to an increased demand for plastic-free packaging.
What To Know When Choosing A Tool Steel Grade
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®: Why You Should Be Using This Reliable Superalloy
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.
Grain Flow During Metalworking: Why It’s Important for Forging
Forging is as much a skill as it is an art. For more than 6,000 years, forging techniques have evolved with one key goal in mind: to advance what forged components can do. Let’s explore why grain flow is an important part of the forging process and how CanForge utilizes this to ensure reliable and superior quality in our forged products.
Cast Metal vs Forged Metal
At CanForge, we're frequently asked about quotes for casting metal components. There’s a common misconception that casting and forging are similar processes that yield the same results. This assumption can lead to costly errors because there are significant differences in how cast versus forged parts should be used.
Small Batch Production with Big Results
True innovation requires time and experimentation. Great innovators like entrepreneur Steve Jobs, to NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, have expanded the possibilities of what technology can do.
