Forging Processes Supported: drop forging, die forging, press forging, upset forging, automatic hot forging, roll forging, multidirectional forging, isothermal forging, net-shape, and near-net-shape forging
The forging process uses heat and force to shape metal objects. Forming near-net-shapes reduces material costs by using less metal, while metal grain flow and grain structure follow the part's shape during forging, resulting in additional machined part strength.
