Forging Tolerances

Forging Tolerances

Due to the nature of the forging process and requirements for draft angles, product mass variations and materials, tolerances must be negotiated on a project by project basis.

Product mass, material and design affect the tolerances that can be achieved by this process.

Theoretical exactness is rarely attained, and it is therefore necessary to make allowances for deviations. These allowances can take the form of post forging machine allowances or hand finishing processes such as linishing or polishing.
