Open die forging
Open die forging of forgings belongs to the group of massive forming and is mainly used for project-based parts with a single part drawing. In simple terms, an open die forging is “tailor-made” for the particular application.
Open-die forging of forgings is not economical for series production. The process of drop forging is to be preferred here.
Open die forging significantly improves the mechanical properties of the steel such as the yield point. The weight range of the parts that are manufactured using free-form forging ranges from 100 kg to 350 tons.
