Enormous Size: Forging a flange with a diameter of 3000mm presents unique challenges due to its massive dimensions. Managing material expansion, controlling internal stresses, and ensuring equipment and process adaptability are crucial factors to consider.

Material Selection: Selecting the appropriate material is of paramount importance for such large-scale flange forgings. We carefully evaluate the mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and forgeability of the chosen materials to ensure the ultimate quality and performance of the end product.

Equipment and Process: Forging a flange of this size necessitates specialized equipment and processes. This includes powerful forging presses, molds, and heating systems. Additionally, meticulous process planning is vital to control temperature, strain rates, and cooling, mitigating the risks of defects and deformations.

Process Control: Strict control over parameters such as temperature, deformation rates, and forging intensity is essential throughout the forging process. This ensures the precise dimensions and ideal mechanical properties of the flange. Haihao Group employs advanced temperature control systems, optimal forging speeds, and precise pressure control to maintain material uniformity and consistency.

Metal Contraction and Deformation: Large-scale flanges experience metal contraction and deformation during forging, which can lead to size instability and shape distortion. To address this, we employ appropriate measures, such as auxiliary materials or post-forging machining, to correct and control these deformations effectively.
