Closed Die Forging

The closed die forging process (also called impression die forging) uses pressure to force or compress a piece of metal to fill an enclosed die impression of a predetermined shape and form. Depending on the product’s size, shape, or specifications, several impression dies can be used to form the finished product.

This process is best suited for producing parts that are smaller in size and in higher quantities and do not have difficult mechanical property requirements.
