Forgings by CGC Kymon
provide structural reliability, allowing designers to trust the material to adhere to the safety factors of the design.
Forging is superior to casting or machining bar stock since the metal’s natural grain flow is made to conform to the shape of the product. Castings have an isotropic grain structure and, for a given part, may be as strong in compression loads, but forgings are superior in tensile and shear loads due to the utilisation of the grain flow.
In forged jobs, the grain flow follows the profile of the part. Any machined part, whether produced from bars or plate will by definition cut through part of the grain flow.
The structural reliability of CGC Kymon’s forgings can also provide more uniform response to heat treatment and machining operations.
