The Advantages of Forged Sugar Mill
Forging offers many advantages for the production of mill
shafts—especially when compared to machined bar.
Near Net Shapes
We recommend the most cost-effective way to produce your parts,
through component reduction, bundling, or other cost-saving
Directional Grain Flow
Unidirectional grain flow has been cut when changing contour,
exposing grain ends. This renders the material more liable
to fatigue and more
sensitive to stress corrosion cracking.
Grain flow alignment through the forging process is deliberately
oriented in a direction requiring maximum strength, yielding
superior mechanical properties.
Superior Fatigue Resistance and Improved Service Life
Proper orientation of grain flow also assures maximum impact
strength and fatigue resistance. This allows the shaft to
better withstand the continuous expansion and compression
cycles as it rotates, thus improving service life.
