Machined Forgings Specifications
At Aerostar Manufacturing, our expertise in machined forgings is underpinned by our profound understanding of the forging process—a metalworking technique renowned for producing parts of unmatched strength. As metal is shaped during forging, its internal grain structure becomes an uninterrupted continuum, bestowing upon the component extraordinary resilience, especially at critical stress points. This inherent strength positions forged parts as the preferred choice for critical “cannot fail” applications across diverse sectors such as aerospace, automotive, mining, and chemical, among others. Over the decades, we’ve nurtured and cemented formidable partnerships with trusted forging entities, ensuring that each piece is not only forged with precision but also machined exactingly to our client’s specifications.
- Material: The forging process can accommodate a wide variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and other alloys.
- Tolerance: The machining process can produce components with tight tolerances, typically in the range of +/- 0.001″ to 0.005″.
- Weight: Forged parts can range in weight from less than a pound to several tons, depending on the application.
- Surface Finish: The forging and machining processes can produce parts with a wide range of surface finishes, from rough (250 RMS) to mirror-like (16 RMS or better).
- Heat Treatment: Many forged parts undergo heat treatment to improve their mechanical properties, such as hardness, toughness, and strength.
- Testing and Inspection: Forged parts often undergo thorough testing and inspection processes to ensure their quality, including visual inspection, dimensional inspection, ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle inspection, and more.
