Our forging vendors have the experience and resources to provide a one-stop solution to your needs. They can produce parts from non-ferrous/ferrous alloys that are fully customised to meet your industrial and company requirements.

In addition, our vendors are also proficient in performing rework or secondary operations on the products/parts (forged) which include heat treatment, surface treatment, finish machining and other types. If you are searching for the right forging partner with cutting edge technologies and an experienced team, you can find them with ease in our vendor database.

What is Forging

What is


The best description for forging in the manufacturing glossary is – the process which involves the pressing, hammering or rolling of metal with a power hammer or dies to produce strong parts (called forgings). Usually, the forged parts are stronger when compared to their original parts. So, they get used in places and applications which require reliability, durability etc.

Types of Forging Processes

Types of Forging Processes

If there is a need to produce large and longer parts with weight running into tonnes, then open die forging is used. These forgings are prepared with flat dies and the most important activity in the process is the workpiece’ movement.

The materials used are ferrous/non-ferrous alloys that are compatible with forging process. The main advantage is, this process can be used to produce a single piece or MOQ production as well as products of various shapes/sizes.


Closed Die Forging

This type has another name – impression-die forging. The process involves the use of either two dies or more that possess impressions of the component or metal part as per the need. When compared with open die forging process, this type gets used to produce intricate shapes and the end product has less tolerances. The metals/alloys used in the process are

As the name implies, this process makes use of two dies to produce parts ranging from ounces to more than 1500 kgs. The materials used are titanium alloys, carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminum alloys and stainless steel. Sophisticated equipment and advanced impression die forging processes are used on strong materials such as refractory alloys, magnesium alloys, nickel alloys etc. The industries that use the components prepared from this process are construction, agriculture, power transmission industry, automotive, petrochemical and other industries.

Cold Forging

This type is a form of cold die forging. Usually, any forging process is completed by making use of high temperatures. However, in cold forging, the opposite version is used – right from room temperature to more than 120 degrees.

Cold forging parts get developed by many processes such as

There are also other processes used to change the shapes of the parts as per the need. As can be easily guessed, cold die forging needs complicated equipment and the service charges are more. However, it scores over its warm counterparts in terms of

But there is a draw-back. It is impossible to use cold forging techniques on strong metals such as high carbon steel. So, design engineers use the below-mentioned materials

Seamless Rolled Ring Forging

In this process, a do nut shape hole gets made in a metal piece (round shape). Then the same piece gets rolled, squeezed or pounded to transform the donut to a ring (thin shape). Please note, the diameters of this ring can range from a meter to more than eleven meters.

Rework – Additional Services (Surface Finishes & Secondary Operations)

Our vendors possess the necessary equipment to work on forged components and modify them as per your need by adjustment in heat processing methods and alloy selection. The heat treatment methods for forging include

other forging works

The other processes that come under fabrication

Other processes such as metallurgical/mechanical, different types of testing are conducted to ensure the end product passes your test standards.

Secondary Processes involve

All these processes are used on the already forged parts to design the end product as per the needs.

From MOQ to Prototyping to Mass Production

Our vendors produce forged parts that are known for their durability and longevity. They have established a niche in specific industry sectors by reducing costs through introduction of the latest technologies and software in their manufacturing processes. Your parts can get designed, processed and delivered within the lead time. So, you can avail their high quality services at the best competitive prices in the Indian market.
