Hot-die forging and isothermal forging are unique forging methods developed to forge materials that are difficult or impossible to forge by conventional means. This article presents a comparative study on hot-die forging and isothermal forging. It discusses forging parameters, process selection considerations, design guidelines, alloy types and selection, and the advantages and disadvantages of hot-die forging and isothermal forging. The article discusses the application of the finite-element analysis modeling to design.
