International Offshore Sourcing for Hot Forging

Custom Steel Hot Forging Process

Offshore sourcing for custom steel forgings manufactured to meet your requirements

Hot forging is a metalworking process in which metals are plastically deformed above their recrystallization temperature, which allows the material to retain its deformed shape as it cools. Sun Fast provides an unprecedented approach to offshore hot forging and impression forging. Our experts deliver proven industrial isothermal forging outsourcing services for the steel and metal industries.

At Sun Fast, we’re dedicated to helping clients find qualified overseas trading partners and manufacturers for their industrial metal hot forging product needs. We work to streamline our clients’ supply chains, resulting in a greater competitive advantage and increased customer satisfaction.

Hot Forging Advantages

Hot forging of metals as a fabrication technique has been around for centuries. Through the process mechanical properties of the metal that is being forged are improved through the metal’s grain structure, which makes it tougher and stronger.

Hot forging can be utilized with almost any metal and can be used to fabricate a wide range of parts. There are numerous advantages that hot forging can provide over cold heading. Some of the more common advantages of isothermal hot forging, include:


  • Good ductility
  • Excellent surface quality
  • Increased flexibility
  • Good for custom parts

Hot Forging Materials

Hot forging can be used to fabricate a broad spectrum of parts, and can be performed with most metal materials, including:

Offshore Hot Forging Temperature Features

Hot forging begins with a forged metal ingot or a cast metal piece. The work stock is heated until it reaches its plastic deformation temperature (recrystallization temperature), which must be maintained throughout the hot forging process. Depending on the material, this temperature can be as high as 1200°C. As the material is formed and shaped, its grain structure is broken down and homogenized into finer grains, which increases the yield strength, ductility, and toughness of the material.

After the hot forging process ends, parts must be cooled rapidly to “set” the metal in its new shape. Care must be taken in the cooling process, however, as cooling hot forged parts too quickly can result in warping. Additionally, the hot forging process produces little to no material scrap, making it one of the most efficient fabrication methods available.

Hot Forging Characteristics 

Hot forgings can be divided into forgings with and without flash. Flash is necessary to produce complex 3D geometries with very different local cross-sections and secondary design elements. The flash acts as a brake on the material flow and slows the flow of excess material. Thus, high internal pressure is built up in the die, which forces the remaining material into the die cavities.

Flashless forgings are generally limited to axisymmetric components or components with cyclic-symmetric geometries.

Hot die forgings are usually manufactured in multiple steps. Semi-finished rolled products (round or rectangular sections) are used as blanks. In rare cases, continuous-cast material or profiled semi-finished products can be used.
