MNL53: Chapter 7: Post Forge Practices

    Pages: 2    Published: Jan 2005


    Abstract

    ONCE FORGING IS COMPLETE, THE QUESTION OF handling the part must be considered. Generally, except for the austenitic stainless steels, before the part is allowed to cool and transform, several factors have to be taken into account. These include the type of steel used, whether or not vacuum degassing was employed in making it, the size of the forging, and the type of post forge heat treatment, if any that the part will be given.
