Forging Technology - As Applied to Automobile Industry

Sharma, S R (1994) Forging Technology - As Applied to Automobile Industry. In: Tailoring of Properties through Mechanical Processing, 23-24, September 1994, NML, Jamshedpur.



Metals and alloys have the ability to be formed into useful shapes by Plastic Deformation. In this process they also develop a wide range of properties particularly strength and toughness. The working of the metals into shapes by means of forging methods refines grain structure, develops inherent strength giving characteri-stics, improves physical properties and produces structu-ral uniformity free from hidden internal defects. More-over, the special feature of flow lines along the contour of the forging produce marked directional properties. These features in forgings give the automobile designers increased confidence regarding the reliability of the vehicle.
