Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces. The blows are delivered with a hammer (often a power hammer) or a die.
Forging is often classified according to the temperature at which it is performed:
The strength of the forging a component is that the manufacturing of highly durable and precise. 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.
