Forging 101 - What Is Forging?

在最基本的层面上,锻造是通过使用锤击,按下或滚动来形成和塑造金属的过程。该过程始于起始库存,通常是铸造铸币(或已经从铸锭中伪造的“ s齿”坯料),该铸币的变热温度已加热到其塑料变形温度,然后在死亡之间沮丧或“揉捏”到所需的形状和大小。

Metal Forging Process

When buyers must select a process and supplier for the production of a critical metal component, they face an enormous array of possible alternatives. Many metalworking processes are now available, each offering a unique set of capabilities, costs and advantages. The forging process is ideally suited to many part applications; however, some buyers may be unaware of the exclusive benefits available only from this form of metal forming. In fact, forging is often the optimum process, in terms of both part quality and cost, especially for applications that require maximum part strength, custom sizes or critical performance specifications.

There are several forging processes available, including impression or closed die, cold forging, and extrusion. However, here we will discuss in detail the methods, application and comparative benefits of the open die and seamless rolled ring forging processes. We invite you to consider this information when selecting the optimum process for the production of your metal parts.





Forging can create a myriad of sizes and shapes with enhanced properties when compared to castings or assemblies.
