The Future of Forging: What This Looks Like

The Future of Forging: What This Looks Like

Forging has always been a manual job with processes being hands on and lengthy. However, with the advancements in technology and machinery, forging processes have evolved and become more automated, robotic, and efficient.

As with the rest of the world, the future of forging is automated and robotic!

Robotic Advancements & Automation in Forging

Robotics are rapidly becoming part of the forging processes, from forging to welding, successfully automating processes that once were done by hand.

These machines have been able to reduce the waste in forging processes, as well as increase efficiency in all processed used. They are also important in the modern world from a health and safety perspective, ensuring the safety of workers around hot forges.

Future Developments & The Impact of Forging

As the world continues to evolve and work towards an automated, greener future, the forging industry may look to become more sustainable, promoting energy efficient methods of heating and induction.

With ‘smart’ forging presses available, this may be something that can help automate the pressing method of forging, developing its efficiency and productivity.

As tools and processes continue to develop in the future, forging will become a far less manual process and be driven by machinery and robotic processes.
