A press forging machine is used in the manufacturing process of metal shaping. The process involves metal shaping with the help of comprehensive forces. Pressure is delivered to metal with power hammer or a die. A die is a tool particularly used in the manufacturing industry to shape or cut material using force. Forging is widely used in the manufacture of large components. Forging is classified according to temperature and based on application such as cold forging and hot forging. Cold working is also known as strain hardening. The process includes strengthening of a polymer or metal through plastic deformation. In hot working practice, metals are deformed above their recrystallization temperature. The power source of a press forging machine is classified into three major types: mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic. Press forging machines are used in manufacturing parts of equipment, which demand safety and high reliability. Moreover, forged parts could vary in terms of shape, size, and application.
Increase in demand for renewable energy equipment, expansion in the automobile industry, development in infrastructure & construction industries, and automation in the manufacturing industry are the primary factors responsible boosting the press forging machinery market. In addition, press forging machines offer a final product with superior metallurgical and mechanical qualities. This is driving the global press forging machinery market. Moreover, rapid rise in the use of IoT (Internet of Things) in the forging industry is likely to propel the market. IoT offers high efficiency, improved life of tools, cost savings, real-time connectivity with the user, increased ROI, and saves time to market and inventories. Moreover, introduction of hybrid forging techniques is projected to drive the market in the near future. In addition, rise in demand for the outsourcing of forging operations is expected to augment the market in the next few years. However, lack of skilled labor and downstream support and high cost of forging machines are projected to restrain the growth of the press forging machinery market. Also, press forging is a time consuming process due to the lengthy steps involved in it. This is expected to hinder the global press forging machinery market. Nevertheless, efforts by manufacturer in collaboration with technology leaders to integrate control systems and drive mechanism are expected to create significant opportunities for the global press forging machinery market.
