  • Abstract The cold-forging process analysed in this paper deals with the production of a hexagonal shape on the head of a bolt. The process utilises a die known as a “Standard Trim Die” which is forced at velocity onto the workpiece to form the bolt head. This process is a combination of cutting and forging. By definition, a cold-forging operation occurs at a temperature below the recrystallisation range of the metal being forged. Due to this fact very high forging loads are required, which in… CONTINUE READING
