A setting is the result of combining two or more metals into a ring. Do not confuse it with alloying.The process of inlaying involves pressing metal into channels,which are then trapped under pressure.On rings,this often results in the metal being placed side by side on the surface for example,a strip of gold running through the middle of a titanium ring.The purpose of the setting is to make the various metals within the titanium ring clearly distinguishable.
Titanium rings have been crafted in a variety of styles throughout their short history as jewelry.Some of these styles are:
The so-called "classic" titanium ring styles are usually crafted as simple ovals or circles with a smooth and shiny finish.Apart from ordinary mechanical processing, no external technology or equipment is used in its production process.
Mokume-gane gives titanium rings a wood grain look.This is a Japanese (and early medieval European) forging technique that was applied to katana swords in the 17th century.This required great skill from the blacksmith; although today's modern processes,such as controlled atmospheres and temperature-controlled furnaces, make the technique easier to achieve.
Sable gives a soft silky feel.
The Frost Titanium Ring has the appearance of being frozen-specifically, the condensation that appears on items placed in the freezer.
Forging is a manufacturing process that involves shaping metal using localized compressive forces.The striking is done with a hammer (usually a power hammer) or a die.Forging is usually classified according to the temperature at which it is performed:cold forging (a type of cold working),warm forging or hot forging (a type of hot working).For the latter two, the metal is usually heated in forging.Forged parts can range in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. Blacksmiths have been forging for thousands of years;traditional products are kitchenware, hardware, hand tools, edged weapons, cymbals, and jewelry.Since the Industrial Revolution, forged parts have been used extensively in mechanisms and machines that require high-strength components; such forgings often require further processing,such as machining, to create finished parts.Today forging is an important worldwide industry.
Advantages and disadvantages
Forging can produce parts that are stronger than equivalent cast or machined parts.As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain texture deforms to conform to the general shape of the part. As a result, the texture change is continuous throughout the part, resulting in improved strength properties.Additionally, forging can achieve lower overall costs than casting or fabrication. Taking into account all costs incurred during the product lifecycle from procurement to lead time to rework, and taking into account scrap costs, downtime and other quality factors,the long-term benefits of forgings may outweigh the short-term cost savings castings or manufactured goods may provide.Some metals may be cold forged,but steel is almost always hot forged.Hot forging prevents work hardening caused by cold forming, which can make secondary machining operations difficult on the part.Also,while work hardening may be required in some cases, other methods of hardening a workpiece, such as heat treating, are often more economical and more controllable.Alloys that can be precipitation hardened, such as most aluminum alloys and titanium, can be hot forged and then hardened.Production forging involves substantial capital expenditures in machinery, tooling, facilities and personnel.In the case of hot forging, a high temperature furnace (sometimes called a forging furnace) is required to heat the ingot or billet. Due to the size of large forging hammers and presses and the parts they can produce, as well as the inherent hazards of working with molten iron, a special building was often required to house the operation.In the case of drop forging operations,measures must be taken to absorb the shock and vibration generated by the hammer.Most forging operations use metal forming dies that must be precisely machined and carefully heat treated to properly shape the workpiece and withstand the enormous forces involved.
