Why Choose Open Die Forging?

In open die steel forging, a hammer strikes and deforms the workpiece, which is placed on a stationary anvil. Open die steel forging gets its name from the fact that the dies (the surfaces that are in contact with the workpiece) do not enclose the workpiece, allowing it to flow except where contacted by the dies. The operator, therefore, needs to orient and position the workpiece to get the desired shape.

Open die steel forging is an important technique for many types of manufacturing. It allows rough and finished shapes of many different steel grades. This type of forging is typically used for very large workpieces; we can supply forged parts up to 300,000 pounds.
