Abstract

Forging machines vary based on factors such as the rate at which energy is applied to the workpiece and the means by which it is controlled. Each type has distinct advantages and disadvantages, depending on lot size, workpiece complexity, dimensional tolerances, and the alloy being forged. This chapter covers the most common types of forging machines, explaining how they align with basic forging processes and corresponding force, energy, throughput, and accuracy requirements.
