Forged chains have been used in various industries for centuries due to their strength and durability. Heating a metal bar until it becomes malleable, then shaping it into the desired shape by hammering or pressing. This process produces a dense, tightly packed structure, which makes the chain resistant to wear and tear and thus ideal for heavy-duty applications.
Forged chains are available in a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, and alloy, each with its own set of characteristics. Steel forged chains are known for their strength and durability, whereas stainless steel forged chains are corrosion-resistant and thus suitable for use in harsh environments. In contrast, alloy forged chains have a high tensile strength.
Forged chains are widely used in manufacturing, construction, and mining. They are commonly found in conveyor systems, lifting and hoisting equipment, and heavy machinery. These chains are also used in marine applications such as anchoring systems and ship mooring, where strength and durability are critical.Would you like more information about how we can help as your forged chain manufacturer?
