Feasibility study of the multi-directional forging technology - PHASE 2

Since 2018, the Forging Commission has been conducting a study on multidirectional forging with the aim of providing the forging industry with enhanced competitiveness. This is a cost-effective process that makes it possible to obtain preforms with more complex geometries and better distribution of the volumes in the part. As a result, the implementation weight of the products is reduced while optimising the number of forging operations. In the first phase of the study numerical simulation was used to validate the feasibility of this technology via several practical cases. One of these cases was isolated for this second phase and related to the creation of a demonstration tool that can be installed on an identical type of machine to that conventionally used, based on the industrial case of a 2-cylinder crankshaft. The investigations carried out in phase 2 (S2043), were broken down into three work packages namely the numerical study of an additional case; supplementary analyses of prototype tests and preproduction tests. All these investigations were used to corroborate the methodology.
