Mechanical Working and other Shaping and Treating Processes

  • A. R. Bailey


Mechanical working. Mechanical working performs two functions, namely, it shapes the metal, and refines the structure, giving general improvement in mechanical properties. The processes include those of rolling, forging, pressing, stamping, drawing and extruding. A large quantity of any specific shape must generally be required to justify its essentially complete production by mechanical working; otherwise where possible the shape will be machined out or constructed from standard wrought stock.
