Advantages of Stainless Steel Forging
Why forge stainless steel? Stainless steel is an overall quality choice of material without forging, known for its corrosion and heat resistance characteristics in addition to its strength. By forging stainless steel, virtually any grade of stainless steel, the process enhances and amplifies the existing qualities of stainless steel. For example, the forging process improves the corrosion resistance of stainless steel, enabling the grade to outlast and withstand harsher, more aggressive and extreme environments. Another advantage of stainless steel forgings is that the process creates a unique and continuous grain flow that follows the stainless steel part unlike other processes such as casting or machining, thus allowing strength to be where it's needed. Forging also can create a higher strength to weight ratio. By improving the mechanical properties of stainless steel, forging stainless steel will better your overall part.
