Anderson Shumaker offers stainless steel 304 open die forging. Forged in house, stainless steel 304 can be forged into rings, bards, discs, custom shapes and more. Forging 304 stainless steel improves directional, impact and structural strength in addition to improved ductility and toughness. 304 and 304L (low carbon version) of 304 Stainless Steel is a low carbon austenitic alloy. By keeping the carbon at 0.03% max it minimizes carbide precipitation during welding. For more information, contact us or call us today to speak with a 304 stainless steel forging specialist.
Applications: 304 Stainless Steel is widely used in the manufacturing of shafts, valve bodies, valve trim and the food industry. 304 Stainless is resistant to atmospheric corrosion, food products, sterilization solutions and many organic chemicals as well as a variety of inorganic chemicals.
