Forgeability can be defined as the tolerance of a metal or alloy fordeformation without failure.Thus good forgeability means less resistance to deformation and evenadverse effects such as cracking are not there. Forgeability can be evaluatedon basis of following tests:(a)Hot twist test(b)Upset test
Hot impact test
Hot Twist Test:
In this test, a hot bar is twisted and numbers of twistsbefore failure are counted. A large number of twists before failure indicatebetter forgeability.
In this test the cylindrical billets are upset-forged tovarious thickness. The limit of upset forging without failure or cracking isconsidered measure of forgeability. This test is widely used in forgingindustry.
Hot-Impact Tensile Test:
A conventional impact-testing machine fitted with atension test attachment is used. The impact tensile test is taken asmeasure of forgeability.
