Forging makes it possible to obtain from a raw form (ingot, bar) a more advanced form, by hammering the part, by using the plasticity of the material.
Forging is the deformation of hot or cold metal between two flat tools by hammering or pressing with a forging press or a forging machine. It allows, by appropriate deformation, to obtain products or semi-finished products in the desired shape: block, sheet, bar, wire, profile …
LThe parts obtained are more resistant to mechanical stress. It causes a tightening of the metal and an orientation of the crystals by the deformation action in one or more preferred directions.
