What is the forging process?
Forging is a process that results in a variety of changes within the properties of the metal. A forging can be produced by several methods, all of them require shaping the metal by plastic deformation. The most common used forging process is impression die or precision forging. There is great variation the temperature and processes required in different methods of forgings. A product can be forged by three different methods, namely cold, warm and die forging depending on its requirements.

A forging process, which requires drawing out the metal results in increased length and a decrease in the cross-section where as upsetting the metal results in the opposite. Squeezing of metal in closed impression dies bring change in length, cross-section, and in overall favorable grain flow.

How does forging differ from casting?
The major difference between forging and casting is that forging can be done to cold, warm and hot metal depending on the requirement of the final product. However the metal is never completely melted and poured into a die where as casting involves pouring of molten metal into a mold for cooling

Open Die Forging
The Open Die Forging is done with hammers and presses of metals like stainless steel, carbon steel and alloy steel. It is a modern-day extension of the pre-industrial metalsmith working with a hammer at his anvil. In this process the metal to be forged is not completely confined as it is being shaped by the dies. The open die process is generally used for large parts like shafts, sleeves, disks etc.

Most of these forgings are produced on flat dies. Round swaging dies and V dies also are used in pairs or with a flat die. Operations performed on open die presses include:

Drawing out or reducing the cross-section of an ingot or billet to lengthen it. Upsetting or reducing the length of an ingot or billet to a larger diameter. Upsetting, drawing out, and piercing--processes sometimes combined with forging over a mandrel for forging rough-contoured rings.

In the open die forging as the metal piece required to be forged is hammered or pressed, it is repeatedly manipulated between the dies till final forged dimensions are reached. The forged part is rough when machined is followed by finishing machine to final dimensions. The increase use of press and hammer control makes open die forging a more automated process.

In this type of forging, metals are worked above their recrystallization temperatures. As the process requires repeated changes in metal piece positioning, it cools during open die forging below its hot-working or recrystallization temperature and hence is reheated before forging can continue.

We follow a thumb rule in open die forging of steel, that 50 lb of falling weight is required for each square inch of stock cross-section.

Compression between flat dies, or upsetting, is an open die forging process in which an oblong metal piece is placed on end of a lower die and its height is reduced by the downward movement of the top die. Friction between end faces of the metal piece and dies prevents the free lateral spread of the metal, which results in a typical barrel shape. The then contact with the cool die surface chills the end faces and hence increases its resistance to deformation and enhanced barreling.

Upsetting between parallel flat dies are restrained to deforming symmetrical around a vertical axis. In case preferential elongation is desired, compression between narrow dies is ideal. Frictional forces in the axial direction of the bar are smaller than in the perpendicular direction, and material flow is mostly axial.

A narrower die elongates better, but if too narrow, the die will cut the metal instead of elongating. The direction of material flow can also be regulated by use of dies with specially shaped surfaces.

Compression between narrow dies are not a continuous process since many strokes must be executed while the metal piece is moved in an axial direction. Roll forging can be used to make this task continuous.

Roll in large size cause greater lateral spread and less elongation as there is greater frictional difference in the arc of contact when compared to smaller rolls which elongate more.

We use Open Die Forging process, for manufacturing products like forged flanges, forged rings etc., in metals like stainless steel, carbon steel and alloy steel. Following is the process of forging:

Processing Flow Chart

Ingot or bloom
In Ingot or bloom process hot working in a continuous-cast bloom or a steel ingot is done on the metal to be forged. The process comprising the steps of three steps; in the first step cooling the bloom followed by quenching the bloom and the last step involves heating the bloom or the steel ingot in a furnace which is followed by hot shaping.

Band Saw
A band saw involves complex coordination between tilting motion and a translational motion of the metal piece and the band saw blade, so that a curved cut is made in the metal piece

Cut Pieces
We have the right equipment, to cut pieces in the required dimensions. The machines are well maintained to offer best products to the clients.

Pre- Heating Furnace
A preheating furnace is used for metal in shapes like bars, billets, and the likes of metal. It has a furnace tunnel formed by furnace shells for preheating the metal. Their central range of the furnace shells are covered by a heat insulation which comprises removable designed insulation members.

In this step forging is done via forging machines which is disclosed for reducing the cross sectional area of the metal piece, laced on the forging axis of the forging machines

Ultra sonic normalizing
This method is used for determining and evaluating physical characteristics of a material. In this method complex ultrasonic waves are created in the metal. The waves formed may be of any combination of the wave types and modes and they are not limited to fundamental plate modes.

Machine shop
We have the required machines to conduct the process of forgings with precision and accuracy. We have latest technology and machines that give accurate forgings. Our staff is well trained, to use the machines and maintain them as well.

Heat treatment process
In the heat treatment process Quenching and Tempering for Metal Forging, Annealing Steel and Metal Forgings is conducted. These process are conducted to maintain the balance of ductility and strength of the metal. The description of these processes is as follows:

Quenching and Tempering for Metal Forging
Metal Forgings that have been quenched and tempered, posses a good balance of strength and ductility. The steel forgings are constantly cooled in water, oil, or saltwater bath, which increases their hardness. To restore softness within the metal forgings, the forgings are then tempered to prevent snapping or shattering.

Annealing Steel and Metal Forgings
Annealed of the forgings is done to recover the ductility and yield strength, which were lost during the hot forging process such as closed die forging or hand forging. Forgings that have to be annealed are first softened to relive internal stress, than recrystallized to grow new, more refined grains.

Marking and Parking
In the last step, we mark the forged metal piece according to their grades and other specifications to m maintain traceability and then the final product is then parked for packaging and delivery.

Leaving no space for loopholes, our products pass through various control systems, material control systems, process control system, machining, dimensional control systems, certification and supplementary tests and finishing tests. We begin quality testing at raw material stage where the raw material is inspected for its chemical composition and surface defects. We also check our raw material for inclusion rating, which plays an important role to ascertain the quality of the end product. We select the size of the raw material such that the required reduction ratio between the raw material and the final product is maintained.

We have comprehensive mechanical testing facilities that include impact and tensile testing which help us achieve the desired quality products. Latest technology such as ultrasonic testing and highly sensitive specialized dye penetrant and magnetic particle technique is used to ensure superior quality products. To maintain the quality standards, we have adequate resources like trained personnel to perform strict quality checks on equipment, material, manufacturing process etc. Quality being the backbone of our company, we conduct strict quality checks on each and every step and assure our clients impeccable products.
