What material is used for anvils?


▶▶▶Anvils are cast.

In the past, all anvils were made of white pig iron. Because of the low production cost of white iron and certain wear resistance and heat resistance, so often used to manufacture similar anvil, iron pot, plowshare, grinding head, furnace bar, annealing box, furnace door, kiln cover, downpipe, iron bell, etc.. Large anvils also have cold iron in the heart, because the cold iron is also surrounded by a white mouth. With the development of the times, the materials used for anvils have also changed. Depending on the size and use of the anvil, the materials used also changed. In addition to the white pig iron, which has been used for a long time, the materials used for manufacturing anvils include gray castings, ductile iron, cast steel parts, etc.

What is the use of anvil?


The main purpose is to be used as a mat under the hammer to smash things, and the anvil is a mat used in ancient China to beat iron, which is available in every blacksmith store, shaped like a thick stake, ranging from 30 to 100 cm high. Some are a whole piece of iron, and some are wooden stakes below and a thick piece of iron above. The anvil still exists in some places, such as Longquan sword casting is still in use. In Chinese folklore, blacksmiths worship Taoist Tai Shang Lao Jun as the ancestor and call the anvil "Tai Shang Lao Jun's knee", which is highly respected and cannot be joked with the anvil or put anything on it, very ritualistic.

Anvil industries


▶▶▶Anvil industry represents the casting and forging industry, casting and forging are two concepts.

Casting, is casting, operation process.

1. castings made of casting sand mold.

2. Casting metal used in the "pot" into the "pot", after high temperature melting.

3. The high-temperature metal "solution" into the mold, cooling and molding.

▶▶▶Forging, is forging, the operation process.

1. The metal is placed in the furnace until red, then removed with iron pliers and placed on an anvil with human or mechanical hammering. Some forgings have to go through several times of burning red → forging → burning red again → forging again to meet the requirements.

2. Forgings into the water or oil "quenching".
