Precision Forging: Crafting Intricate Stainless Steel Components for Aerospace

Friend Metals Steel distributor

Precision forging is a controlled deformation process under localized compressive forces, ensuring metals’ meticulous transformation into desired shapes with minimal wastage and utmost accuracy. Unlike traditional forging, which often requires additional machining, precision forging aims to produce near-net-shape parts. Within aerospace, the demands are monumental. Aircraft components must endure extreme conditions, tolerate immense pressures, and […]

Titanium, Stainless Steel, and Aluminum: AMS Forging

AMS Specifications for Stainless Steel

Overview of AMS Forging When you think of the aerospace industry, think of intricate engineering marvels that traverse vast skies or explore the uncharted cosmos. Now, imagine the foundation that supports these marvels: the materials and forging processes. That foundation is fortified by the Aerospace Material Specifications (AMS). Diving deep into the essence of AMS, […]

Aerospace Applications Where Stainless Steel Forgings Shine


The process of forging stainless steel involves shaping stainless steel alloys using controlled deformation, often aided by heat and mechanical force. This technique endows the metal with enhanced mechanical attributes, including augmented strength, resilience, and improved resistance against fatigue and corrosion. Consequently, stainless steel forgings find their way into an array of aerospace parts, from […]
