Hybrid Forging: Advances in Open Die and Closed Die Forging for Heavy Movable Structures will provide a metallurgical overview of forging. In critical load-bearing applications, the superior structural integrity of forgings makes them the preferred choice due to enhanced mechanical properties, impact strength and fatigue endurance limits… often boosting service life. The webinar will examine options to upgrade castings, rolled and welded plate and machined bar stock to near net shape forgings in order to eliminate structural flaws and weldment problems for maximum strength components. It will also discuss advantages and disadvantages of carburized gearing vs. through hardened gearing. Bridge owners, government agencies, designers, contractors, suppliers and other groups involved in movable bridges and heavy movable structures, as well as purchasers and R&D specialists should attend this event.
