FAQs about Forming Technology

The main difference between hot and cold forming lies in the temperature at which the metal is formed.

  1. Temperature: In cold forming, the metal is processed at room temperature or slightly above, while in hot forming, the metal is heated to elevated temperatures but kept below its melting point.
  2. Properties of the Metal: Cold forming largely preserves the metal's existing properties, including its strength and hardness. In contrast, hot forming alters the mechanical properties of the metal through heating, making it softer and more malleable.
  3. Formability and Ductility: Cold forming is particularly suitable for thin-walled parts and allows for precise shaping with tight tolerances. Hot forming, on the other hand, facilitates the forming of complex parts with deeper shapes and often enables the production of parts with less material usage.
  4. Energy Consumption: Cold forming requires less energy since the metal does not need to be heated to high temperatures. Hot forming, however, requires the provision of heat energy to bring the metal to the required temperature.
  5. Tool Wear: Cold forming typically results in higher wear of forming tools due to the higher material strength of the metal. Hot forming can reduce tool wear as the metal is softer and offers less resistance.
