Closed Die Forging Process

Shape forging is a closed die forging process wherein hot metal is shaped within the walls of two dies that come together to enclose the work piece on all sides. Due to the complexity of the geometries that can be obtained through this process and the strains involved, several dies may be used sequentially to go from the initial bar to the final shape. Through this process Mattco Forge Inc. can produce parts that hold incredibly tight tolerances while offering the strength advantages of forged metal components.
