Forging Presses

With open-die forging the workpiece attains its shape by changing the cross-section. The required shape is produced by multiple forging strokes, whilst simultaneously alternating between rotational and feed motion. The forging process is undertaken hot (retaining material strength), semi-cold or cold (increasing material strength). It requires extremely high forces (up to 1000 MN) and speeds (up to 120 strokes/min).

Requirements of Components/Systems:

  • Temperature resistance
  • Shock resistance
  • Insensitivity to dirt
  • High accuracy of forging dimensions
  • High flow rates and high pressures
  • Energy efficiency
