What is the difference between forged and cast teeth?
Forged teeth are made from heat-treated alloy steel to help sustain wear resistance so you can often come to expect a longer wear life from forged teeth. The downsides are that there are more limits on shaping and forged teeth come at a higher cost.
Cast Teeth are made from austempered ductile iron and heat-treated to offer maximum resistance to wear and impact. They are strong and lightweight in design and cast teeth are self-sharpening. They can last almost as long as forged teeth and they are significantly cheaper – making them more economical and cost-effective.
When deciding which option is best, you need to understand the material being processed, abrasion level, and impact the machine is subjecting the tooth to.
FYI – the largest difference is actually in impact – cast does not react well to high torsional forces breaking as it is a more brittle compound.
Whereas the forged tooth has long grains of steel giving it much greater torsional flexibility – so it will almost bend before it will break. Every solution is different so you must understand what’s required.
