In July 2019, the UAE customer purchased a batch of forged steel balls of 45 steel from us, which was the first time the customer cooperated with us.

Introduction of Forging Balls

Forged ball is a traditional steel ball production process. Internationally, though, the rolling ball production process has taken off.However, because the forging balls have its own advantages, this traditional technology has been retained while the steel ball technology has been constantly updated. Especially in wet grinding process of mine mills,there is large demand for forging balls.

According to the material, forged steel balls can be divided into: C45 steel balls, 60Mn forged steel balls, 65Mn forged balls, 40Cr forged grinding balls, 42CrMo forged  balls and so on.The obvious advantage of forging steel balls is smooth surface, high impact toughness,much lower crushing rate than casting steel balls. But the price is far lower than the high chromium steel balls, but wear resistance can be comparable with high chromium steel balls.Forged steel balls in large mines is far more cost-effective than high-chromium steel balls. Customers can choose suitable steel balls according to the prices of steel balls, quality standards and application.

Forged forged balls are generally used in mining engineering and the general customer orders are tons of steel balls. However, this customer in UAE has special  application. In line with the purpose of serving customers, we communicated with our production department continuously and finally provided this batch of products to the customer at a preferential price.The customer is always in a fast pace from the initial inquiry to the later purchase. We also actively cooperate with the customer and provide timely help to her when she needs it.

The production process

1. The raw materials

The raw material of forging ball is round steel rod of various specifications. The steel rod needs to be cut to reach the technical length

Heat 2.

The cut, fixed-size steel rods are mechanically or manually fed to a natural gas heater and heated to a suitable temperature

3. The forging

Heated to a suitable temperature, the steel rod is sent to the forging device and forged into a ball

4. Heat treatment

After the steel ball is forged, it needs to undergo specific heat treatment to reach the required hardness

5. Test

After heat treatment, the steel ball also needs to be tested to check whether it meets the required hardness and whether special treatment is needed

6. Packing

Finished steel balls are usually packed in two ways, iron drum: 850KGS steel balls, ton bag: each bag can hold one ton.

7. Put in storage

The finished ball is usually placed in a designated area, waiting for delivery.

Features of Forging Balls

1. Diameter: 70 mm – 200 mm;

2. Hardness: HRC55-67, hardness is evenly distributed from the surface to the core;

3. Impact toughness :(12-35)J/cm2;

4. Broken rate: less than 0.1%;

5. The steel ball has no deformation from the beginning to the end of service and does not lose its roundness;

Chemical composition Of Forged Steel Balls is shown in the following table:

Application Field of Forging Balls

The main application fields of forging ball include:

1. Ball mill mine processing equipment ball mill, power plant ball mill, cement factory ball mill, etc. In short, ball mill equipment accounts for more than 90% of the total application of forging ball.

2. The forging ball surface of wrought iron products can also be used on wrought iron products through special treatment, such as electroplating and spraying, to play a certain decorative role.

3. The surface of the bearing rolling ball is polished and can be used in the bearing industry.

We have stock for this kind of standard forging balls. We use plywood cases or strong flexible container bag or steel drum to pack the Forged Steel Balls, which is beautiful and strong.Before packaging, we also arranged professionals QC test on the Forged Steel Balls to ensure that each ball meets the requirements of the customer.

The customer was very satisfied with our products and affirmed our working attitude. Later, she also inquired us about our other products. I believe we will have more cooperation in the future.
