Forging dies are usually made of high-alloy or tool steel. Dies must be impact- and wear-resistant, maintain strength at high temperatures, have the ability to withstand cycles of rapid heating and cooling. In order to produce a better, more economical die the following standards are maintained:
#The dies part along a single, flat plane whenever possible. If not, the parting plane follows the contour of the part.
#The parting surface is a plane through the center of the forging and not near an upper or lower edge.
#Adequate draft is provided; usually 5° to 7° for steel.
#Generous fillets and radii are used.
#Ribs are low and wide.
#The various sections are balanced to avoid extreme difference in metal flow.
#Full advantage is taken of fiber flow lines.
#Dimensional tolerances are not closer than necessary.
As Genc Tool&Die we are following above standards to produce a better , more economical forging die.
