Forging is the working of metal into a useful shape by hammering or pressing. This is a oldest of the metal working art (primitive blacksmith).Replacement of machinery occurred during early the Industrial revolution. Most forging operations are carried out hot, although certain metals may be cold-forged. In this paper we are going to see the process parameters that affect forging.
