Definition

The term “cold forging” represents both a range of bulk forming processes done with workpieces at room temperature and the resulting component made by cold forging. Metalworking by cold forging predominantly comprises cold extrusion processes. In an extrusion process, the cross-sectional area of a single workpiece is reduced by forcing it through an orifice with a punch, as shown in Fig. 1. In cold extrusion, the workpiece is initially at room temperature when supplied to the forming process (CIRP 1997). The following essay deals with the metal forming process cold forging.
