Steel Forgings

Steel Express can now source steel forgings internationally. Our aim is to make it easy for you, our customers, to find the steel products you need, at the right price and the right quality. We understand that it can be difficult and time consuming for you to obtain products that are not only cost effective but also of the quality you expect. Steel Express can source forged products in a range of different materials, including: carbon steels, alloy steels, tool steels and stainless steels. Forgings are sourced from multiple sources including the Far East, where they have developed a name for delivering cost effective, quality engineering forgings.

The Steel forgings that we source are used in many diverse industries including oil and petrochemical industries, in power generation products, machine transmissions, and in harsh environments such as mining and marine.

At Steel Express we continue to strive to offer our customers excellent service and the addition of the forging service is the next step in providing an even more comprehensive service. A professional, economical solution to sourcing your forged steel components.

Mechanical testing: Tensile, Izod, Charpy, Stress Rupture, Hardness.

Advantages of forged steel components

Costs: The forging process is a cost trade-off between the initial setup cost of the dies and tools, and the recurring costs of manufacturing parts. Therefore forgings become more cost effective when larger production runs are required.

Strength: There are also metallurgical advantages to forging a steel component. Because the metal is shaped during the process the internal grain deforms and follows the general shape of the piece. This results in a final product with better strength characteristics that could be achieved through machining alone.
