Forging or Casting? How to Choose Spanner Wrench Forging Process and Drop Forging Hammer?

2019-10-25 11:35:37

An opening or a sleeve hole for holding a bolt or nut is arranged at one or both ends of the wrench handle. When using, an external force is applied to the handle along the thread rotation direction, and the bolt or nut can be turned. Although the structure of spanner is simple, it plays an important role in people's daily life.  

At present, there are two kinds of wrench spanner manufacturing processes: one is casting, the other is wrench spanner forging process.

Is Spanner Wrench Cast or Forged?

Spanner wrench casting process

Melt the bar into liquid state, then pour it into the die cavity with spanner shape, and wait for it to solidify to form a complete spanner. 

Disadvantages of cast spanner

The hardness and wear resistance of the cast spanner are relatively poor. If you want to increase the hardness and wear resistance, you need to add chromium (CR), but the price of chromium is very high, adding chromium will increase the cost of the spanner, so that the economic growth of the cast spanner in the market will decrease.

Is spanner wrench forged or cast?

Spanner wrench forging process

Heat the bar, and then put it on the closed die drop forging hammer or other die forging equipment for forging. After initial forging and precision forging, the bar can be directly forged into spanner or wrench.

Advantages of spanner wrench forging process

Because of the high speed of forging hammer and the high variation of wrench shape, the internal structure of wrench is fully changed and the forging density is increased. Therefore, the spanner wrench forged by CNC closed die drop forging hammer has high hardness and strong wear resistance. 

Spanner Wrench Forging Is Better than Casting

The forging surface quality is higher than the casting quality, and the forging streamline is that the bearing load of the forging can be greater, so the forging advantage of hardware wrench manufacturing is greater than the casting process.
