Forging is a manufacturing method that involves shaping metal by applying heat and force. It begins with heating the metal to a high temperature, making it more malleable. The heated metal is then placed on a die and struck repeatedly with a hammer or pressed with a mechanical press to deform it into the desired shape. This process enhances the metal’s strength and improves its grain structure, resulting in durable and reliable components. Forging is commonly used in the production of automotive parts, tools, and machinery components where strength and integrity are critical.
