The future of forging is being shaped by ever increasing technological advancements.

Alloy development will grant customers greater and more accurate material selection when fitting a material to a specific application. Improved equipment controls will enable forging companies to make more repeatable product with nearer net shapes and higher rates of production.

Simulation will need to increase in accuracy as to optimize the manufacturing processes and predict more characteristics like microstructures and residual stresses. This exciting wave of technical improvement and development will allow the forging industry to remain cost competitive in the high performance metals market.

But it is not merely advancements in technology that define the forging future.
Individuals in the forging industry will need to continue their education and training to keep pace with these developments.

Thus with these technical and professional advancements, this age-old industry is forging an exciting future.

Toward a Definition

By | forging 101 page | No Comments
Technically, forging may be defined as the process of giving metal increased utility by shaping it, refining it, and improving its mechanical properties through controlled plastic deformation under impact or pressure.
But the true meaning of forging can be more clearly recognized by considering the variety of ways it serves mankind and the important characteristics forged parts offer those who design, purchase and use them.
Forgings are commonly found in machines and conveyances at critical points of shock or stress – particularly where reliability and human safety are affected. And yet the great variety of shapes, sizes, and properties available in forgings has extended the list current applications and potential future uses far beyond this point.
