This article introduces a practical technique that enables the reduction of burning loss or mill scale and increases yield in most kinds of steels. The technique is most successfully adopted in open-die hot forging and hot rolling of stainless and other expensive alloy steels.
Rotary forging is a cold-forming process invented by Edwin Elmer Slick in 1914. Slick Mills were used to form circular products such as railroad wheels and tire molds. More recently, research to further the process is being conducted at the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) in Glasgow, Scotland.
The Defense Logistics Agency is the Department of Defense’s largest logistics combat support agency. It supplies 84% of the military’s spare parts and provided $44 billion in sales and revenue in fiscal 2012.
