Stainless steels are iron-base alloys containing at least 10.5% Cr. They achieve their stainless characteristics through the formation of an invisible and adherent chromium-rich oxide surface film. This oxide forms and heals itself in the presence of oxygen.Ronsco is 23 years stainless Steel Forgings manufacturer. Any of the over 200 grades of stainless steel can be custom forged to fit each client’s specific needs. For example, the stainless steel 13-8 is available in pre-cut shapes including flat bar, hexagon, and round, as well as forging contour rings, discs, shafts, and more. For custom forgings read below for information on the dimensions that Ronsco can forge by shape:
Flat bar blocks up to 120” width and 60,000 lbs.
Cylinders and sleeves up to 84” maximum O.D. and 108” maximum length
Discs and hubs up to 96” diameter and 75,000 lbs.
Rolled rings, hand forged or mandrel forged rings up to 2
Stainless steel has virtually limitless uses within a number of industries. To the layman, stainless steel is most often seen in the kitchen in sinks, stovetops, and flatware. The below industrial uses show its true versatility:
Can withstand frequent cleaning or sanitizing, such as medical devices, food service equipment and processing equipment
High corrosion resistance allows for prolonged exposure to corrosive environments such as pumps, valves, chemical and petrochemical processing equipment, and marine equipment
Stainless Steel has high heat resistance in situations where it is used for heat exchangers, furnaces and ovens
High performance in high wear and high stress environments, such as landing gears, motor components, fittings and connectors
Using its high strength and stability in finished products such as frames, shafts/structural components and fittings

Forged Stainless Steel Advantages
Stainless steel forgings provide a wide range of benefits for your forged part project requirement needs. Great Lakes Forge creates custom forged stainless steel parts with the following benefits:
Protective Oxide Layer - Stainless steel forgings contain a protective oxide layer that assists in corrosion assistance. These metal forgings resist stress cracking, crevice corrosion, pitting, deformation, and other hazards that could shorten the life span of a forged part.
High Corrosion Resistance - Stainless steel allows for prolonged exposure to corrosive environments such as pumps, valves, chemical and petrochemical processing equipment, and marine equipment.
High Heat Resistance - In situations where it is used for heat exchangers, furnaces and ovens stainless steel maintains extremely high heat resistance qualities.
In addition, stainless steel forgings retain all of the advantages of a forged part - the open die forging process retains the internal grain of the stainless steel, which creates a part that is much stronger than a cast or machined part.
There are also certain disadvantages associated with the use of stainless steel as your material of choice for your forging needs. Some disadvantages associated with stainless steel are its high cost, fabrication handling ability, difficulty in welding, and finishing challenges.
