A cone shaped die is used in the orbital forging for the forging of metal parts.

A. True

B. False

The question was posed to me in class test.

This key question is from Forging topic in portion Types of Die & Metal Forming Processes of Casting-Forming-Welding II

The correct option is A. True

Explanation: In the orbital forging process, forming is done to the meat part by using a cone-shaped die that is simultaneously rolled and pressed into the material. The metal part is supported on a lower die, because of inclined axis of cone. In the process, only a small area of the metal surface is compressed at the stage of forming.
