Some examples of metal forming process methods

What is the forming process in metal?

The forming process is a unique manufacturing strategy that uses appropriate stresses (such as compression, tension, shear, or mixed stresses) to drive the plastic deformation of the material to produce the desired shape. The base material used in the forming process is metal because of the large public demand for some products, although other compounds, such as plastics, can also be formed because of the huge market for plastic-based products. 

Some examples of metal forming process methods:

1. The forging

Forging is a manufacturing technology that uses local compression force to form metal. Strike with a hammer (usually an electric hammer) or mold. Forging is usually labeled according to the temperature at which it is performed: bloodless forging (a type of cold work), hot forging, or warm forging (a type of hot work). In the latter two cases, the steel is usually heated in a forge.

Forged parts range in weight from well under a kilogram to heaps of metric tons. Blacksmithing has been used by smiths for thousands of years; The usual products are kitchenware, hardware, hand tools, bladed weapons, cymbals, and jewelry. Since the Industrial Revolution, solid parts have been widely used in machinery and machines everywhere, requiring high strength aspects; Such forgings usually require further machining (e.g. machining) to obtain the finished product.

2. Squeeze

Extrusion is the process used to create a constant cross-section profile of an object. A mold that pushes the fabric through the desired cross-section. This technique has two important advantages over different manufacturing methods, one is that it can produce very complex cross-sections, and the other is that it can produce fragile materials since fabrics only encounter compressive and shear stresses.

3. Plate gold processing

Sheet metal is an industrial system in which steel is molded into thin, flat sheets. Sheet metal is one of the important forms used in metalworking. It can be compressed and bent into various shapes. Countless everyday objects are made from sheet metal. Thickness can vary significantly; extremely thin sheets are considered foil or leaves, and sheets more than 6 mm (0.25 in) thick are considered steel plates or “structural steels”.

Sheet metal is a convenient flat piece or roll. The coil is shaped by jogging a continuous sheet metal through a roller scutter.

4. Scroll

In metalworking, rolling is a steel forming process in which the steel is restricted and homogenized by one or more pairs of rollers. This concept can be compared to rolling noodles. Rolling is classified according to the temperature of the steel being rolled out. If the temperature of the steel is higher than its recrystallization temperature, this process is considered hot rolling.

If the temperature of the steel is below its recrystallization temperature, the system is considered cold rolling. The hot rolling process has the largest tonnage of any different manufacturing process in the use phase of the roll forming machine manufacturer and the roll forming machine supplier, while bloodless rolling has the largest tonnage of all bloodless processing processes. The roller stands that protect the roll pairs are combined to form a roll mill, which can quickly process metal (usual steel) into metal structures (I-steel, I-steel, channel steel, etc.), bars, rails and other products. There are many kinds of rolling processes, including ring rolling, roll bending, roll forming, profile rolling and control rolling.
