Hammers are usually used for flashless drop forgings of cylindrical form, i.e., the form of gears, flanges, rings and so on. The forging process is accomplished in. Impression-die forging is occasionally called closed-die forging in industry terminology. However, there is a technical distinction among. Flashless forging offers the possibility of producing aluminum composite connecting rods at competitive costs. The design of flashless forging.

In addition, the volume flzshless metal in the workpiece must be controlled within very narrow limits to achieve complete filling of the cavity without developing extreme pressures. The process is also used to give good surface finish and dimensional accuracy on the work parts made by other operations.

Flashless (Enclosed Impression Die) Forging | Forging Industry Association

Open Die Forging Forging Operations. Flash less forging is often classified as a precision forging process.

Return to Table of Contents ‘. The term flash less forging is appropriate to identify this process.

A general application of coining is, of course, in the minting of coins, shown in below Figure. If the blank is quite small, the cavity will not be filled properly. However, there is a technical distinction among impression-die forging and true closed-die forging.

Your email address will not be published. For example, flashless forging is usually accomplished in one operation, and does not allow for progressive development of difficult-to-forge features through several stages of metal flow.


The absence of flash is an obvious advantage for flashless forging over the conventional impression die process, but the process imposes additional requirements. Split die arrangements are illustrated forginf Figure Actually, a thin fin or ring of flash may form in the clearance between the upper punch and die, but it is easily removed by blasting or tumbling operations, and does not require a forginf die. It takes some very well controlled preforming steps to accomplish this precise weight control in the final die.

Forging Press Forging Operation.

Flash less forging impose necessities on process control that are more demanding than impression-die forging. If the starting blank is very large, extreme pressures may cause damage to the die or press. Most essential is that the work volume should equal the space in the die falshless within a very low tolerance. The process sequence is illustrated in below Fig.

Forging hammers Drop hammers. Estimates of these forces can be computed via the same methods as for impression-die forging: In some cases the lower die may be split, allowing as-forged undercuts. Coining is a unique application of closed-die forging in which well details in the die are impressed into the top and bottom surfaces of the work part.

There is small flow of metal in coining, yet the pressures needed to reproduce the surface details in the die cavity are high. Introduction to Forging Bulk Deformation of Meta Enclosed dies are illustrated in Figure Because of the special demands prepared by flash less forging, the flasjless lends itself most excellent to part geometries that are generally simple and symmetrical, and to work materials such as aluminum forgint magnesium and its alloys.


The process is used to produce a near-net or net shape forging. The process is therefore called flqshless forging”, and is sometimes forying “enclosed die forging”. Impression-die forging is occasionally called closed-die forging in industry terminology. The dies make no provision for flash because the process does not depend on the formation of flash to achieve complete filling. Impression die forging is sometimes performed in totally enclosed impressions.

Return to Table of Contents. Product by Flash less forging operation Forces in flash less forging reach values equivalent to those in impression-die forging. The distinction is that in closed-die forging, the raw work piece is totally contained within the die cavity during compression, and flash is not formed anywhere.
