Forging Die Life Improvement Workshop

Event Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020 to Thursday, August 20, 2020



The FIA Forging Die Life Improvement Workshop is designed for attendees to learn multiple facets of extending the life of dies. Failure in forging dies can often be traced to die material, heat treatment, die geometry, lubrication and forging conditions. Since the forging conditions change from application to application, no universal solution to die failure exists. This workshop will examine topics such as die materials, lubrication technology, surface coating techniques, die design and the economic justification of tool steel investment.
