Dies, forging

Forms for the making of forgings; generally consist of a top and bottom dieThe machined recess in a die that gives the forging its shape.. The simplest will form a completed forgingThe process of working metal to a desired shape by impact or pressure in hammers, forging machines (upsetters), presses, rolls, and related forming equipment. in a single impressionA cavity, or series of cavities (multiple), machined into a forging die to produce a desired configuration in the workpiece during forging.; the most complex, made up of several dieThe machined recess in a die that gives the forging its shape. inserts, may have a number of impressions for the progressive working of complicated shapes. Forging diesForms for making forgings; they generally consist of a top and bottom die. The simplest will form a completed forging in a single impression; the most complex, consisting of several die inserts, may have a number of impressions for the progressive working of complicated shapes. Forging dies are usually in pairs, with part of the impression in one of the blocks and the rest of the impression in the other block.... More are usually in pairs, with part of the impression in one of the blocks and the balance of the impression in the other blockThe forging operation in which metal is progressively formed to general desired shape and contour by means of an impression die (used when only one block operation is scheduled)..
