Forged Cylinder Ratios
The maximum length of forged sleeves, forged cylinders and blind cylinders is restricted by the wall thickness and outside diameter. If the ratios exceed tolerances, the cylinder can either collapse in on itself or take on a whiskey barrel shape where the center begins to bow outward during the forging process. Your All Metals & Forge Group Sales Consultant will be able to determine if your cylinder ratios exceed tolerances.
