The importance of sufficient lubrication

One of the key components in the production of quality forgings is the correct selection and use of lubricants. A good lubricant will:

  • Reduce friction at the metal to metal contact areas allowing better flow
  • Enable easy removal of the forged part from the die
  • Reduce unwanted heat from the dies
  • Extend, by increased protection, the working life of the die
