Open Die Forging provides great flexibility in the manufacturing of your parts. Heated metal parts are typically produced on flat dies that are not restricted like the confined dies that are used in the closed die forging. In addition to being the best option for custom designed parts‚ there are 4 distinct advantages associated to the open die forging process and they include:
- The ability to produce very large products which cannot be processed in closed dies due to size limitations.
- Cost effective when quantities of the product are low thereby eliminating the cost of required tooling used in the closed die forging process.
- Offers a wider range of Mechanical Properties that may not be able to be achieved by other forging processes.
- Quicker deliveries of product due to the fact that dies do not have to be fabricated as they do in the closed die forging process.
