Process engineers applied established physical theories and volumes of data to determine the possible outcome of forging nickelbased alloy discs for industrial valves

Process engineers applied established physical theories and volumes of data to determine the possible outcome of forging nickel-based alloy discs for industrial valves.

Process Mapping/Simulation Combo Succeeds for Open-Die Set Up

Prior to forging high-value alloy discs, a team of experts evaluates every step of the process. Integrating process mapping Accommodating design, procedures Distributing press energy

The value of forging process simulation is not simply in how it optimizes production sequences, but in what information it reveals to the operators about the forging equipment and processes. For example, in 2014 a new, 100,000-mt open-die press was inaugurated at GIVA Corp.’s Forgiatura a Vienna operation near Milan, Italy. To maximize its commercial potential, GIVA established a cross-functional engineering group of experts in forging, Ni-base alloy metallurgy, and computer simulation
