Open Die Forging

Open Die Forging

The Open Die Forging process involves heating up the metal and working the metal between a top ram and die and bottom anvil and die, through repeated blows. The operator manipulates the metal using his skill and expertise to produce the desired form.

Often the tools are just flat tools, but also can have profiles and other shapes, being open on either or both ends (Semi-open die). Shapes can be forged into the end or in the length of stock by first upsetting the material, as well as bespoke forgings being made from a single billet.
