The difference between forged flange and machined flange
Although forged flange and machined flange are of the same kind, actually they are quite different. Today I will introduce the difference between those two flanges briefly.
The forging process of flange is generally lower in carbon and less prone to rust than that of casting flange. The forging is streamlined, the structure is compact and the mechanical performance is better than that of casting flange; If the forging process is improper, the grain size will be large or uneven, and will occur the hardening crack. The forging cost is higher than the casting flange; Forgings can withstand higher shear and tensile forces than castings. The advantage of casting is that it can be made more complex shape, relatively low cost; The advantages of forgings are that the internal structure is uniform and there are no harmful defects such as blowholes and inclusions in the casting.
The difference between casting flange and forging flange from the production process, such as centrifugal flange is a kind of casting flange. Centrifugal flange belongs to the precision casting method of flange production, this kind of casting than ordinary sand mold casting structure is much smaller, quality is improved a lot, not easy to appear the organization loose, porosity, trachoma and other problems.
