Forgings Exporters & Suppliers India

Forging is a metal shaping process in which a heated work piece is formed by rapid closing of a punch and a die forcing the work piece to conform to a die cavity. A work piece may be forged by a series of punch and die operations (or by several cavities in the same die) to gradually change its shape.
