The importance of post-forging cooling

Why is it cooled after forging

The post-forging cooling of forgings is as important as the pre-forging heating and forging  deformation process. Sometimes, the normal heating standard and proper forging of steel materials can ensure that high-quality forgings can be obtained. However, if the post-forging cooling method is not properly selected, the forgings may be cracked or even scrapped.


 Cooling after forging refers to the process of cooling from the final forging temperature to room temperature after finishing forging.

 Common defects of post-forging cooling include cracks, white spots, etc.


 Cooling crack is caused by internal stress generated during cooling. Because of the low temperature and poor plasticity of forgings in the later stage of cooling, the risk of internal stress in cooling is greater than that in heating.

White spot

 White spot is the result of hydrogen enrichment and tissue stress.White spots mostly occur in pearlite and martensite alloy steels, carbon steels are lighter, austenite and ferrite steels rarely find white spots, and ledeburite alloy steels also don't find white spots.

  • Q Are you a manufacturer or a trader?

    We have our own foundry ,forging factory and machinery shop located in Liaoning Province, China.
  • Q What can you do for customer?

    One Stop Service

    3).Factory audit, on-site production supervision, in-time feedback, pre-shipment quality inspection
  • Q How could you commit the product quality?

    1) all our factories were ISO certified. 
    2) more than 50% of New Densen’s products were sold to worldwide top 500 companies 
    which located in North American, Western Europe, and Japan.
    3) New Densen’s QC engineers will do on-site supervision and before EX-work quality inspection. New Densen will issue inspection reports for customers’ approval before EX-work. New Densen will be responsible for its reports and every parts no matter how long sold to customers.
  • Q How long shall we get the quotation?

    Processing time for inquiry: 1-3 working days.
  • Q What's the process of developing a new steel casting product?

    The procedure for new project develop as below:
    1. Technical department analyze the drawings all details 
    2.Pattern design and manufacture
    3.Casting Process
    4.Quality Control inspect the casting parts
    5.Issue inspection report for customer to check quality
    6. After inspection report approved, Logistics Department help arrange the shipping to customer
