Process & Product
Using vast forging and casting experience, Sheffield Forgemasters RD26 is able to provide bespoke process development. New processes can be simulated and refined in order to meet customer requirements. Both the manufacturing route and the final product design can be optimised.
Meeting the required final properties are key to the production of a successful component. In some cases this goal is achieved by the correct selection and processing of a steel grade. However, it is possible to significantly improve performance by making alterations to current grades or producing a new grade of steel. Sheffield Forgemasters RD26 is able to work in conjunction with customers to develop new steel compositions/grades, designed specifically to meet demanding applications.
