A process that transforms solid metal into shapes of varying cross-sectional material thickness, often involving heating.
The plastic deformation of metals into complicated shapes by compressive forces exerted on a die. This can be hot forging at elevated temperatures or cold forging. The pressure exerted can be heavy and quick as in drop-hammer forging or slow and even heavier with hydraulic pressure forging.
Forging is the process of forming a product by hammering or pressing. When the material is forged below the re-crystallization temperature it is said to be cold forged. When worked above the re-crystallization temperature it is said to be hot forged.
The process of working metal to a desired shape by impact or pressure in hammers, forging machines (upsetters), presses, rolls, and related forming equipment.
Hot deforming of metal by means of presses, power hammers, swaging machines, etc.
a metal part that has been heated and formed into a predetermined shape between a set of dies
a piece of metal that has been formed, usually, but not always heated, into a shape through the application of pressure
A piece of metal which has been shaped or formed, while hot by forging with a hammer (hand or power), in a press, or by a drop hammer.
style of metal shaping where a heated piece of metal (ingot) is repeatedly pounded with a hammer over an anvil until a desired shape is reached
Shaping metal by impact or pressure. The metal may be heated prior to shaping.
The hammering or pressing of metal to join or shape it, usually at high temperatures.
Process of working metal to the desired shape by impact or pressure from hammers, presses or forging machines. The metal object so produced is termed a forging.
A metalworking process that involves hammering or squeezing, with or without a die, at hot working temperatures to form a specific shape.
The shaping of metal by heating and hammering.
The production of semi-finished forms from wrought metal blanks hot or cold in closed dies by a sudden, sharp impact. See “HAMMER FORGING” and “HOT PRESS FORGING
The process of deforming solid aluminum into a product by hammering or squeezing it into a die.
Producing a golf club head from a series of forging dies stamping the head to final shape. Forged heads are made of softer metals than cast heads and require hand finishing and chrome plating.
Shaping metal with hammers while it is hot; the method for making wrought iron.
The act of plastically deforming metal into desired shapes by hot or cold fabrication methods, utilizing the ductility and malleability of metal by exerting compressive force upon it, mainly through the blows of a hammer.
The method of reshaping metal through the application of heat and compression.
mechanical forming of a metal or alloy by heating and hammering.
The process of working metal parts into a shape by means of hammering or pressing the material after it has been rendered pliable by heating it to a high temperature.
A metal part worked to a predetermined shape by one or more processes such as hammering, upsetting, pressing, rolling, etc.
Technique for shaping metal through hammering it against an anvil or stakes.
Forming a hot or cold metal into a fixed shape by hammering, upsetting, or pressing.
A piece of metal, hammered, bent or pressed to shape while hot.
A process of working metal to a finished shape by hammering or pressing and is primarily a "hot" operation. It is applied to the production of shapes either impossible or too costly to make by other methods or needing properties not obtainable by casting. Categories of forgings include Hammer, Press, Drop or Stamping.
semi-finished metal product that has been hot formed into an engineered shape by any one of a variety of mechanical compressive forces. Hammer forgings, open die, closed die and press forgings are some of these types.
A process where metal is shaped by pressing, pounding, or squeezing under very high pressure, to form forgings.
See Hammer Forging or Hot Pressed Forging.
The act of deforming solid aluminium into either a particular shape by hammering or squeezing in a closed die, or deforming between flat platens.
A metal forming process which a billet with carefully controlled volume is deformed (hot or cold) by a punch in order to fill a die cavity.
