During massive forming, the flow of material into given free space (forms) is effected by high application of a force. This process is done with our without pre-heating (warm forming respectively cold forming). With regard to the materials a large range of deformable metals and steels is available.
Modern production facilities for massive forming allow the manufacturing of components with formed functional contours showing narrow tolerances. The procedures of massive forming save resources and due to the rising prices of raw materials and energy are becoming more important.
