High temperature forging

Case Brief Introduction

High-temperature forging using a medium-frequency heating furnace involves using induction heating to raise the temperature of metal workpieces to a suitable range for forging. This process is commonly employed for shaping and forming metal components. Below are the general steps involved in high-temperature forging using a medium-frequency heating furnace:

  1. Prepare the Workpiece: Ensure that the metal workpiece is clean and free from contaminants. Properly position the workpiece in the medium-frequency heating furnace.

  2. Select Suitable Induction Heating Parameters: Adjust the operating parameters of the medium-frequency heating furnace, including frequency, power, and heating time, to achieve the desired forging temperature. The specific parameters will depend on the material and size of the workpiece.

  3. Induction Heating: Initiate the induction heating process to raise the temperature of the workpiece to the required forging temperature. Induction heating is effective for achieving precise and localized heating.

  4. Monitor Temperature: Continuously monitor the temperature of the workpiece during the heating process to ensure that it reaches the desired forging temperature.

  5. Forging Operation: Once the workpiece reaches the appropriate temperature, transfer it to the forging press or hammer for shaping. High-temperature forging allows for better material flow and facilitates the deformation process.

  6. Cooling: After the forging operation is complete, allow the workpiece to cool gradually. Some controlled cooling may be necessary to relieve internal stresses and improve the mechanical properties of the forged part.
