Forging is a process that involves the manipulation of material to achieve a desired shape, offering a compressed and directional grain flow to produce a stronger and more resilient component.
Many components supplied into the recycling and waste industry, particularly metal profiles, are cut from plain material. The unidirectional grain flow in the plain material gets cut when changing contour, exposing grain ends. This renders the material liable to fatigue and sensitive to stress corrosion cracking.
Our example shows a hinge profile, a component subjected to a constant load. In a forged state the grain flow is not only compressed but flows around the eye, this increases both strength and longevity. In a plain state the profile is cut, exposing the natural grain flow on all cut edges.
We have software that can perform Stress Analysis tests from rendered 3D models, using both static and assembled components.
This enables us to evaluate product structure and design suitability and make alterations to suit various requirements. We can also input various material properties making the system fully customisable.
