Open Die Forging

Time to Read: 2m 12s

Open die forging is a process of shaping metal parts in a way that maintains the grain structure of the metal, and enhances the strength and durability of the completed part. Open die forging is classified by the temperature at which the open die forging is performed: the steel is heated above the recrystallization temperature and gradually worked into the desired shape. Open die forging is often used to create rough shapes: blocks, rounds, spindles, but can also be used in more detailed forging operations, such as the creation of custom forged crankshafts. Forged parts are stronger and more durable than similar cast or machined parts.
