What is Drop Forging?

What is Drop Forging
  • Drop forging is a metal forming process that utilizes gravity and impact to shape heated metal into precise and intricate shapes.
  • It involves repeatedly dropping a heavy hammer onto a workpiece placed between two dies, forcing the metal to conform to the die cavity.
  • This process is renowned for producing high-strength, high-quality components with exceptional dimensional accuracy.

Drop Forging Process

Drop forging stands as a versatile and highly effective metal forming process capable of producing high-strength, high-precision components for a wide range of applications. Its ability to produce near-net-shape parts makes it a cost-effective solution for large production runs.


Drop Forging process typically involves the following steps:

1. Billet Preparation: The raw material is cut into billets, which are pieces of metal that are the correct size and shape for the final part.

2. Billet Heating: The billets are heated to a high temperature, typically between 1650°F and 2200°F (900°C and 1200°C), to make them soft and malleable for shaping.

3. Die Placement: The heated billet is placed between two dies, which are precisely machined tools that define the shape of the final part.

4. Hammer Dropping: A heavy hammer is repeatedly dropped onto the billet, forcing the metal into the die cavity. The impact of the hammer causes the metal to flow and fill the die, taking on the desired shape.

5. Trimming and Finishing: Once the forging process is complete, any excess metal is trimmed away, and the forged part may undergo additional finishing operations, such as heat treatment or surface treatment.
