  4. 4. Forging Processes ERC NSMCold Forging - Starts at room temperature (RT to 600-800 F)Warm Forging - Below or near recrystallization temperature (900 F - 1800 F for steel)**Tool designs for cold & warm forging are similar, but temperatures and lubricants are differentHot Forging - Above recrystallization temperature (1800 F - 2200 F for steel, 800 F for Al) 4
  5. 5. Effects of Test Temperature and ERC Test Speed NSM Effects of test temperature and test speed (strain rate) on tensile strength and reduction of area of hot rolled type 1045 steel (Courtesy: Technical Report by Bethlehem Steel Corporation, Bethlehem, PA) 5
  6. 6. Cold, Warm, & Hot Forging ERC - Advantages & Disadvantages - NSM Cold Warm Hot Advantages Advantages Advantages• Precision Process (Tight • Combines Advantages of • Can Forge Complex Tolerances) Cold & Hot Forging Shapes• Improved Part Strength • Better Formability • Good Formability• Better Surface Finish • Lower Forming Pressures • Low Forming Pressures• Material Conservation • Higher Deformation Ratio • Can Forge Parts of Higher • No Annealing Required Weight and Volume Disadvantages• High Forming Pressures Disadvantages Disadvantages• Several Pre-Forming Steps Needed • High Tooling Costs • Formation of Scale• Annealing Steps May Be • Tooling Must Withstand • Decreased Accuracy Required During Process Forming Pressures as well as (Larger Tolerances)• Low Formability High Temperatures 6
