Orbital Cold Forming Technology - Combining High Quality Forming with Cost Effectiveness - A Review


Objectives: This review presents a short communication of cold orbital forging process, its characteristics and compare with classical forging. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Orbital forging have special progressive motion permits the contact space between tool and workpiece to be smaller and thus, lowers forming load and friction. Therefore orbital forming in some cases makes it potential to provide the specified part in exactly one operation, whereas in classical forging quite one operation would be needed. Findings: Cold orbital forming is more useful and preferable in comparison to other manufacturing processes as we can manufacture more number of gears with better surface finish in less time. Thus, cold orbital forming has much higher efficiency. The process is less time consuming and saves labor costs too. Hence, better finished gears can be manufactured in bulk and it also turns out to be more economical than the other manufacturing processes. Current review illuminates the techno economical advantages of the orbital forming process and how advantageous it is over classical forming process. Application/Improvements: This review includes the forming time and distribution of stress and strain on the workpiece and also the die.
