What is a Hand Forging?
A hand forging is also referred to as an open die forging. The formal definition as defined by the Aluminum Association Standards and Data is: "A forging worked between flat or simply shaped dies by repeated strokes or blows and manipulation of the piece." In other words, forging is the process of manipulating stock between open dies, while shaping it in various intervals which are usually conducted by compression using a hydraulic press.
