Forged Metals

Cliffe Metal Products Inc. supplies various industries with forged Metals from 8 different types of metal alloys. We have manufactured both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys since 1972, making sure that we only make forged metals that meet our client’s needs. So, what metal alloys can be forged?

Types of Metal Forgings

The process of forging involves heating, deforming, and finishing a piece of metal. Controlled deformation improves the microstructure of forged metals during the forging process. Forging results in directed alignment (or “grain flow”), which is essential for directional characteristics like ductility, strength, impact resistance, and metal fatigue.

Below are the eight different families of metal alloys that we forge.

Alloy Steel Forgings

Most alloy steel forgings are used mainly for industrial applications. Alloy steel forgings are stronger, robust, and more rigid than cast steel, all thanks to their reinforcements. In addition, the grain structure of the alloy Steel forgings makes it more resistant to high wear.

At Cliffe Metal Products, we have the resources, experience in the microstructure of forged metals, and Expertise to manufacture these custom alloy steel forgings. So, no matter what needs you may have for your industrial projects, contact us, and find out more about our alloy Steel Forgings.

Tool Steel Forgings

We understand that a large percentage of industrial machining is done using tool steel. That is why as Cliffe Metal Products Inc., we provide high-quality tool steel forgings that meet your industrial machining needs.

Need more information on the tool steel forgings? You can always reach us to get more information.

Nickel Alloy Forgings

These forgings are used in areas where there are extremely high temperatures and highly corrosive environments. Thanks to these environments, nickel Alloy Forgings are pretty expensive, and some industries and manufacturers may find it challenging to obtain them.

However, at Cliffe Metal Products, we use our long-lasting relationships with other producers to supply Nickel alloy forgings at the most competitive prices you can ever get.

Titanium Forgings

Over the years, the need for titanium alloys and titanium has immensely increased, subsequently affecting the high rise in their prices. These forgings are mainly used in aerospace and aviation applications.

Regardless of the high prices, you can still trust us to produce titanium forgings for you and your industrial needs.

Carbon Steel Forgings

Forged carbon steel contains many types of alloys with no minimum percentage—the more carbon found in steel, the lower the melting point. If you feel that you need more information about forged carbon steel, be sure to contact Cliffe Metal Products Inc.

Stainless Steel Forgings

Stainless steel has limitless uses in industries; for instance, it is also found in the kitchen sink, cutlery, and many others. It can withstand frequent washing, cleaning, and it can also withstand high levels of heat. Stainless steel also has over 200 grades available.

We are experts in custom forging stainless steel to meet our client’s needs. Our long experience allows us to answer any questions you may have about stainless steel forgings.

Aluminum Forgings

Aluminum is the most lightweight metal but do not confuse lightweight with weakness. Aluminum is corrosion-resistant, and it does not oxidize due to the microscopic oxide coating on its surface.

Aluminum and its alloys are forged into a wide range of forms and forging types, with a wide range of final component forging design requirements depending on the intended use. Aluminum alloy forgings, particularly closed-die forgings, are typically produced to more refined final forging configurations than hot-forged carbon and/or alloy steels, owing to differences in the high-temperature oxidation behavior of aluminum alloys during forging, forging engineering approaches used for aluminum, and the higher material costs associated with aluminum alloys.

Copper Forgings

Like aluminum and stainless steel, copper is used in many industrial applications. Forged copper can withstand extreme levels of heat. It can withstand high-level stress in industrial manufacturing.

Individual and intermittent applications of pressure are used to create forgings from hot copper. Open or closed dies may be used in the forging process. These items are often more intricately shaped than other forms of molded copper.

The forging strain rate, the kind of forging being produced, the lubrication conditions, and the forging workpiece and die temperatures are all factors to consider.
