Forged materials provide strength, impact resistance and high levels of toughness. This is due to the process itself, a process of controlled deformation. This controlled deformation leads to an intentional grain flow and directional alignment which can enhance the strength and resistance properties of the material.
When you are looking into forged products, it can be tough to decide which materials you will use. There are a variety of options with different properties and qualities to consider; all of which change during the forging process.
B. B. Price are forging experts and have put together a short guide on the different forging materials and how to determine the right material for your product.
