What is Hot Forging?

Hot forging, also known as hot forming or drop forging, is a metalworking process that involves shaping and deforming metal at elevated temperatures.Compared to other manufacturing methods, metal forging is known to produce some of the strongest manufactured parts available. You’ll often see it used in industries that require strength and durability, such as the marine, construction, and agriculture industries, where it’s used for make structural components for tractors, combines, and plows.   

Additionally, forging is commonly used to fortify tools like drill bits used for mining and drilling. For these critical components, forging ensures there are no porosity issues that could cause breakage when drilling deep and through rock. 

How Does Hot Forging Work?

Hot forging is a process that entails heating a piece until it’s nearly three-quarters of the way to melting. At this high temperature, metal is more pliable and easier to shape, allowing manufacturers to create more elaborate shapes than with cold forging

During hot forging, the temperature reaches above the recrystallization point of the metal being formed. The final desired shape is achieved through hammers, presses, or other machinery that compress the heated metal.
