Technological aspects of high-power forgingpressing equipment for industry in the USSR are discussed. Use of such equipment allows for substantial lowering of metal expenditure, the reduction in cost of the finished product, and the improvement of mechanical properties of the base metal. The fifth five-year plan 1951-1955 called for an increase in the production of highpower forging-pressing equipment by eight fold. However, during this period only a 5.6 fold increase was accomplished. Cost and metal consumption in producing these units were primary obstacles in their production. High-power, small-dimensions presses of new structural design should result in reduction of production costs.
