Forging is a metalworking process by shaping metal by hammering, pressing, or rolling it into the desired shape. The metal is heated to a temperature in which it becomes malleable, making it easier to shape, and then subjected to force to form it into the desired shape. This process can be done with various tools, including hammers, presses, and rollers.
Forging is a versatile manufacturing process that can produce a wide range of products, from simple household items like kitchen utensils to complex engine parts and structural components. It offers a number of advantages over other metalworking processes, including improved strength and ductility, better fatigue resistance, and the ability to produce complex shapes that will be difficult or impossible to achieve through other means.
