Open die forging application

The differences between open and closed forging process make the end product look different and the major difference in application lies in the size of the product. Now let we understand and applications of open die forging.

Applications : 

  • It is the rough process of forging as it does not involve a fixed die size so this process does not use in precision. 
  • This process is best suited for forging bigger and heavier metal parts like forged shafts and rollers that find their application in railways because not required much surface finishing machining and create ultra-finished products. 
  • The advantages of this process range from better microstructure as the grain size are fine and have a continuous flow this the products in forging method include forged long shafts, forged rollers, and forged cylinders which mostly used for the application of many industries.
