What are the points that should be kept in mind during forging design?
Some of the points that should be followed while forging design are: > A radial flow of grains or fibers must be achieved in the forged components. > The forged items such as drop and press forgings should have a parting line that should divide the forging into two equal halves. > The ribs in a forging should not be high or thin. > In order to avoid increased die wear the pockets and recesses in forgings should be minimum. > In forgings the parting line of it should lie as far as possible in a single plane. > For ease of forging and easy removal of forgings the surfaces of the metal should contain sufficient drafts.
