A New Stretching Process: Slant Forging Method


Article Preview

High transversal properties requirements of heavy axial forgings, traditionally, often are met through the selection of high-performance materials, the improvement of metallurgical quality and repeated forging. But the production costs and power consumption are both high. A new slant forging method is adopted, by controlling the metal flow direction in forgings, to achieve the increase of transversal mechanical properties. Finite element method was applied to study the influence of forging process parameters on flow lines in axial forgings, providing theoretical guidance for the eventual realization of the forging method.
