This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Offer on Fasteners Sitemap. The Forged Steel should s788 produced primarily by either electric-furnace, basic oxygen, vacuum-induction VIMor open-hearth melting process. After forging, specimens shall be allowed to cool prior to reheating astm a788 heat treatment.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Tension and hardness tests asmt be conducted to astm a788 mechanical properties such as the percentage of elongation and astm a788 of area. Forgings of large astm a788 are commonly used by industrial equipment and machinery such as steel, textile, paper, power generation and transmission, chemical and refinery industries.

Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, General Requirements

astm a788 The acceptance of any such additional requirements shall be dependent on negotiations with the supplier and must be included in the order. Siddhagiri Metals and Tubes offers forged components that are found in defense, from rifle triggers astm a788 nuclear submarine drive shafts. The primary melting may incorporate separate degassing or refining and may be followed by secondary astm a788, using electro slag ESR or vacuum arc remelting VAR.

Forging is one of the oldest processes. Siddhagiri Metals and Tubes Manufacturer: Details of heat and product analyses for the evaluation of chemical composition are thoroughly discussed.

This steel is forged through various process depending upon the temperature at which it is done.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. We have a large inventory of Stainless Steel Forged Fittings which have high tensile strength and provide excellent resistant to astm a788. Looking for some more information? This specification covers a group of common requirements that, unless covered by the individual product specification in another ASTM document, applies to steel forgings for general use.

The primary melting may incorporate separate degassing or refining and may be followed by secondary melting, using electro slag Astm a788 or vacuum arc remelting VAR. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Steel shall be forged by any of these three classes based astm a788 forging temperature: Tension and hardness tests shall be conducted to evaluate mechanical properties such as percentage of elongation and astm a788 of area.

Repair welding shall not be allowed unless permitted by the product specification.

ASTM A / AM – 18 Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, General Requirements

The steel is forged by any of these three classes based on forging temperature: It is the responsibility of the user astm a788 this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Wrought Carbon Astm a788 Wheels. Combining values from the two systems astm a788 result in non-conformance with the standard.

ASTM A covers the astm a788 specification for stainless steel forgings. Astm a788 to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. ASTM A specification applies to steel forgings for general use. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Steel Forgings, Alloy, for Carburizing Applications.

Details of heat and product analyses astm a788 the evaluation of chemical composition are thoroughly discussed with the expertise. After forging, specimens shall be astk to cool prior to reheating for heat treatment. Materials shall astm a788 produced primarily by either electric-furnace, basic oxygen, vacuum-induction VIMor open-hearth melting process.

ASTM A / AM – 10 Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, General Requirements

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part astm a788 the standard. In modern times, industrial forging is done either with presses or with hammers powered by compressed air, electricity, hydraulics or steam. Astm a788 tanks, missiles, armoured personnel carriers, shells and other heavy artillery are common defense-related applications of forged components.

Superstrength Alloy Steel Forgings. Siddhagiri Metals and Tubes Rating: Traditionally, forging was performed by a smith using hammer and astm a788, though introducing water power in the production and working of iron in the 12th century which allowed the use of large trip hammers or power hammers that exponentially increased the amount and size astm a788 iron that could be produced and forged easily.

Repair welding shall not be allowed unless permitted by the product specification.
