Comparison: Stainless Steel, Aluminum Alloy, Copper, Copper Alloy, Carbon, and Alloy Steel Forging Processes

Forging Process differs for various grades, types and alloy of metals. In this article we shall select following different types of metals and/ or alloys.

  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum Alloy
  • Copper
  • Copper Alloy
  • Carbon
  • Alloy Steel

Based on the difference in use, applications and feasibility different alloy forgings are used. We shall differentiate the above based on certain factors to make it more useful in practical use.

  • Use/ Choice of Machinery
  • Selection of Dies/ Die Material
  • Type of furnace and Forging Temperatures
  • Selection of Lubricants for Dies
  • Cleaning/ Finishing/ Shot Blasting

To understand the above, please read detailed articles or posts given on this site.
