Forging Industries

Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces. The blows are delivered with a hammer . Forging is often classified according to the temperature at which it is performed cold forging (a type of cold working), warm forging, or hot forging (a type of hot working). For the latter two, the metal is heated, usually in a forge. Forged parts can range in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. Forging has been done by smiths for millennia; the traditional products were Kitchenware, Hardware, Hand tools, Edged weapons, and Jewellery. Since the Industrial Revolution, forged parts are widely used in mechanisms and machines wherever a component requires high strength; such forgings usually require further processing (such as machining) to achieve a finished part. Today, forging is a major worldwide industry.
