What is Forging and Its types ,Advantages
Introduction To Forging:
|Forging machine Operations|
- Forging is a plastic flow of metal by the application of compressive forces in which size and shape is changed permanently without failure.
- Forging is a deformation process in which work is compressed between two dies using either impact or gradual pressure to form the part
Materials suitable For Forging :
Any material (Metal or Alloy) which can be brought to plastic stage through heating can be forged.
- Aluminium and its alloys
- Copper and its alloys
- Magnesium and its alloys
- Tungsten and its alloys
- All types carbon steels
- Stainless steels
|types of forging machines|
- Ability of material to get forged by the external pressure of hammer or press is known as forgeability. Forgeability increases with temperature up to a point at which a second phase,e.g. from ferrite to austenite in steel, appears or if grain growth becomes excessive.
- Metals which have low ductility have reduced forgeability at higher strain rates, whereas highly ductile metals are not so strongly affected by increasing strain rates.
