What is the difference between flange and ring forging?

The difference: the flange is a part, and the ring forging is a processing method.
Flange, also known as the flange. The flange is a joint between the pipe and the pipe for the connection between the pipe ends; it is also used for the flange on the inlet and outlet of the equipment for the connection between the two devices, such as the flange of the reducer. A flange connection or a flange joint refers to a detachable connection in which a flange, a gasket, and a bolt are connected to each other as a combined sealing structure. Pipe flange refers to the flange used for piping in the pipeline installation. It is used on the equipment to refer to the inlet and outlet flanges of the equipment. There are holes in the flange, and the bolts make the two flanges tightly connected. The flanges are sealed with gaskets. Flange threaded connection (threaded connection) flange, welded flange and clip flange. Flanges are used in pairs. Low-pressure pipes can be used with wire-bonded flanges, and welded flanges are used for pressures above four kilograms. A gasket is placed between the two flanges and then bolted. Different flange thicknesses for different pressures use different bolts. Pumps and valves, when connected to the pipeline, the parts of these equipment are also made into the corresponding flange shape, also known as flange connection. Connection parts that are bolted at the same time around two planes are generally referred to as "flanges", such as the connection of ventilation ducts. Such parts may be referred to as "flange parts". However, this connection is only a part of the equipment, such as the connection between the flange and the water pump, it is not good to call the pump "flange parts". Smaller such as valves, etc., can be called "flange parts".

Ring forging, under the action of ring equipment and tools, plastic deformation of the blank or ingot to obtain a forging process with a certain annular size."
