Ferrous alloys are iron containing compounds, having a valance of +2 . The most common type of ferrous alloy is steel with carbon contents of between 0 and 2 weight percentage. Other alloying elements lead to the forming of carbides, which improve the material properties as hardness, tensile strength and hardenability. Mild steel, stainless steel, cast iron and wrought iron are other well-known ferrous metals, mainly praised for their tensile strength and durability. Ferrous alloys are also the most recycled materials in the word.
Setforge provides all types of ferrous alloys. Our expertise includes a solid knowledge of the metallurgy of the applied metals as forging temperature, HTcycle-heat treatment, following forging process-cycle, etc. Our know-how in material deformation is of critical importance for the final product. Setforge Engineering experts systematically use software simulation to ensure the efficiency of the process when designing a new component.
