Product category: Forging

Custom Forgings

Melting, forging, heat-treating and machining capability at Finkl Steel Co. allows for a wide range of custom-forged products. Multi-diameter shafts, gear blanks, mandrel-forged rings, roll-shells and specialized shapes, including bored products, are available in a wide range of sizes and weights ranging from a few pounds to over 100,000 pounds. Most popular carbon and alloy AISI/SAE grades such as 1026, 1045, 4140, 4150F (Resulfurized), 4340, and 8620 are readily available. Custom and specialized alloys can be considered for melting. Finkl is capable of producing to various industry specifications such as ASTM, API, ASME, ABS, AMS and Military, as well as product-specific specifications. Full laboratory capability and metallurgical assistance is available.

Cold Work

Cold working of metals is performed at or near room temperature so that the advantage of reduced yield strength, or forging pressure, accompanying elevated temperatures is not available to assist in the forming operation. Additionally, metals “work harden”, i.e., increase in yield strength, during deformation at lower temperatures, further adding to the work necessary to reach the desired shape.

Forging Dies

The two essential properties that characterize die steel are hardness, for wear resistance, and fracture toughness, required for crack resistance. Both of these characteristics change with alloy composition and heat-treated condition of the die steel. In general, die steel compositions that focus on wear resistance by having high carbon and alloy together with a high hardness, are susceptible to cracking. Alternatively, die steel compositions with lower carbon and alloy, and heat treated to a softer, more ductile condition will favor crack resistance over wear characteristics. Finkl die steels span a full range of available alloy compositions and heat-treated properties that are available to our customers. Please consult with your Finkl representative for assistance in determining the proper combination of die alloy and heat treated condition for your application.
