Though the most common forging process known is the open-die one, it is important to notify that close die forging is getting more and more popular as companies requiring high mechanical properties are often selecting the forging process.
Close-die process is suitable for smaller parts (from 0.5 lb up to 450 lbs) that have basic to medium complexity shapes with medium to high volume runs (since there is a one-time tooling cost at first order).
Closed-die forging is made in all steel materials available on the market.
The main benefits of making parts in closed-die forging is to produce high quality parts with greater physical properties at a competitive price.
