Pagination or Media Count:
Dynapak high energy rate forging equipment users have been surveyed and are unanimous in their conviction that high energy rate forging is the greatest advance in forging technology for many decades. High energy rate forging has the potential for 1 improving quality of forged parts 2 lowering forging costs, and 3 forging configurations that could not otherwise be produced by conventional forging practices. The following high energy rate forging information has been established In most cases draft is not required improved surface finishes are possible closer tolerance and dimensional controls can be attained difficult forging materials such as titanium, precipitation hardening alloys and refractory materials can be forged and grain size in forged parts can be reduced.
