This Warm Forging and The Advantages

Warm forging is a process where the metal is slightly heated above room temperature for forging to be done. Material is deformed above room temperature but less than the recrystallisation temperatures; therefore, this process has similar characteristics to hot and cold forging. Temperatures in the hot forging process range from 650 °C – 1000 °These temperatures depend on the workpiece’s physical properties. Parts with simple designs can be made at lower temperatures within the above range.

The commonly used metal in warm forging is a steel alloy. This s is because it is easily deformed through warm forging compared to cold forge and t has better tolerance components than those in hot forging.

Parts with complex designs cannot be obtained through the warm forging process. This is because the forging temperatures are typically low than those used in hot forging, thus making the workpiece less flexible he not easily bent.

Here are some of the prime benefits of warm forging:

Lower cost

The lower cost of warm forged parts is why most manufacturers and buyers are going for them. The low costs are due to low production costs in warm forging processes. Buyers looking for cheaper and high-quality parts should consider warm forged parts.

High productivity

Cold forging can meet high volume part demand. A wide variety of parts can be produced in a single production line in cold forging. This high productivity level for warm forged parts has increased buyer satisfaction due to the high availability of these parts in the market. Therefore, when looking for mass production, this is one of the best techniques to consider

Quality product

Quality parts forged parts are obtained in warm forging. This is due to its thorough process that ensures high-quality forged parts are produced. This has caused an increasing demand for these parts in the market today.

Durable parts

Most of the warm forgings are made of steel alloy metal. It is well known that steel is the hardest metal in the industry, and this only means that quality, toughest parts are achieved through warm forging. Due to their toughness, they have low chances of breakage and high resistance to wear and tear; they are thus very durable.
