Right fork material. Right heat treatment. Right yield strength
Standard fork material compared to the Scana fork material. When exposed to the same load it clearly shows how different the stress level affect the materials. The Scana material incorporates an extra safety margin within the same cross section of a product, whereas the standard material makes the fork more sensitive to plastic deformation. In the event of an impact blow or a crack initiation on the fork, the standard material quickly loses its strength due to its soft core. The Scana material, on the other hand, has a more even transition from high strength at the edges to the core of the cross section, which allows for a more robust and impact resistant fork. Scana Booforge's unique heat treatment assures the optimal combination of strength and crack resistance. The entire fork is deep-hardened in our Heat Treatment Center, certified for the oil and gas industry. Uniform quality is achieved as a result of a maximum 1 per cent temperature deviation throughout the entire forging process.
