Changing the Science and Processes of Forming

Forging (and other processes) are being reconsidered and re-engineered based on possibilities introduced by additive manufacturing Mold design, redesign HIP for better form PM, then AM

Underlying all that is attempted and accomplished in forging and forming technology is material science, an increasingly wider field of R&D, design, and production methods. In the past decade, additive manufacturing has expanded the possibilities of metal forming and forging in multiple dimensions, creating new alloys, introducing new methods for shaping them, and applying more flexible design principles to established manufacturing systems.

For example, forming dies (fo
