In this video we check out the development of a multi-directional forging process as a preforming operation for crankshafts. The process first begins with contact between the work piece and the tool which are demonstrated by a FEA simulation. The CAD construction of the tool gives an insight into its working principle. The top view reveals the forming elements; the side view shows the wedges that redirect the press force into the horizontal direction. Finally, the tool concept is put into practice in forging trials. To check it all out click the video below!
