What Does Forging Mean

Release Date:[8/1/2016]    Hit Count:[]

Forging is a kind of process. Let me simply tell you something about it.

At its most basic level, forging is the process of forming and shaping metals through the use of hammering, pressing, or rolling. The process begins with starting stock, usually a cast ingot (or a “cogged” billet which has already been forged from a cast ingot), which is heated to its plastic deformation temperature, then upset or “kneaded” between dies to the desired shape and size.

During this hot forging process, coarse grain structure is broken up and replaced by finer grains. Shrinkage and gas porosity inherent in the cast metal are consolidated through the reduction of the ingot, achieving sound centers and structural integrity. Mechanical properties are therefore improved through reduction of cast structure, voids, and segregation. Forging also provides means for aligning the grain flow to best obtain desired directional strengths. Secondary processing, such as heat treating, can also be used to further refine the part. Forging can create a myriad of sizes and shapes with enhanced properties when compared to castings or fabrications.
