5.2 Forging Processes

There is a wide variety of processes that can be classified as forging under the definition at the beginning of this section. Five will be addressed here: open die, impression die, ring rolling, cold forging and warm forging. Cold forging is performed at or near room temperature, and the workpiece work hardens (increases in strength with increasing deformation). The other processes are performed at elevated temperatures, and the workpiece does not work harden significantly.
