Forging

Forging is controlled, plastic deformation or working of metals into predetermined shapes by means of pressure or impact blows, or a combination of both. Forging improves the quality of the metal, refines the grain structure and increases strength and toughness. Forgings can offer decisive cost advantages, especially in high-volume production runs. Forged parts are generally near-net shapes, making better use of material, generating little scrap, and requiring less machining and labor time. Properly designed, a forging can replace an entire multicomponent assembly.

Specific Processes-

  1. Cold Forging
  2. Impression Die Forging
  3. Open Die Forging
  4. Closed Die Forging
  5. Seamless Rolled Ring Forging
