Mastering Metal Forming: An In-Depth Guide to Forging Presses

Forging presses play a vital role in the metal forging industry, providing the immense force necessary to mold metal workpieces into precise and intricate shapes. These machines are crucial for manufacturing robust metal components across various industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, and heavy machinery. Understanding the different types, features, and considerations for acquiring forging presses can significantly enhance your metal forming operations. Kitmondo, a premier online marketplace for used industrial machinery, offers a wide selection of forging presses, giving businesses access to top-quality equipment at competitive prices.

What Are Forging Presses?

Forging presses are mechanical devices designed to apply gradual, controlled pressure to deform metal workpieces into desired shapes. Unlike forging hammers that deliver rapid impact blows, forging presses use steady, continuous force, making them ideal for precision forging tasks and large-scale production runs.

Types of Forging Presses

Forging presses come in various types, each suited to specific forging needs. Here’s an overview of the main types:

Mechanical Forging Presses

Mechanical forging presses utilize mechanical linkages and cams to convert rotational motion into linear pressure, delivering force to the workpiece. These presses are known for their high speed and reliability.

  • Crank Presses: Use a crank mechanism to drive the ram, ideal for high-speed and high-volume production.
  • Eccentric Presses: Feature an eccentric drive for precise control over the pressing force, perfect for intricate forging tasks.

Hydraulic Forging Presses

Hydraulic forging presses use hydraulic fluid pressure to operate the ram, providing significant force and precision. They are suitable for heavy-duty forging and forming large or complex parts.

  • Direct-Drive Hydraulic Presses: Utilize direct hydraulic drive for consistent and powerful pressing capabilities.
  • Accumulator Hydraulic Presses: Store hydraulic energy in accumulators, allowing for quick and powerful strokes.

Servo-Electric Forging Presses

Servo-electric forging presses employ electric motors to drive the pressing mechanism, offering exceptional control and energy efficiency. They are ideal for applications requiring high accuracy and repeatability.

  • Compact Servo-Electric Presses: Suitable for small to medium-sized operations, offering precise control and reduced energy consumption.
  • High-Capacity Servo-Electric Presses: Designed for large-scale production, providing high speed and accuracy.

Screw Forging Presses

Screw forging presses, also known as friction screw presses, use a screw mechanism to apply force. These versatile machines are suitable for various forging applications, including coining, embossing, and forming.

  • Friction Screw Presses: Drive the screw mechanism using friction, offering high force and durability.
  • Electric Screw Presses: Use electric motors for the screw mechanism, providing precise control and efficiency.

Key Features and Specifications

When selecting a forging press, it is essential to consider specific features and specifications to ensure the machine meets your operational requirements. Key factors include:

Pressing Force

The pressing force determines the machine’s capability to deform metal workpieces. Ensure the press can deliver the necessary force for your specific forging tasks, whether for small, detailed components or large, heavy-duty parts. Kitmondo’s listings provide detailed specifications on pressing force, helping you find a machine that matches your needs.

Stroke Length and Speed

The stroke length and speed impact the efficiency and precision of the forging process. Look for machines with adjustable stroke lengths and speeds to accommodate different materials and forging requirements.

Control Systems

Advanced control systems enhance precision, consistency, and efficiency. Features such as programmable settings, touch-screen interfaces, real-time monitoring, and automated adjustments can significantly improve productivity.

Build Quality and Durability

The build quality and durability of the forging press are crucial for long-term operational efficiency. Machines constructed from high-quality materials, such as robust steel frames and wear-resistant components, are more resistant to wear and tear. Easy-to-maintain designs and accessible components simplify maintenance, reducing downtime and operational costs.

Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient machines reduce operational costs and environmental impact. Look for forging presses with energy-saving features like efficient hydraulic systems, servo-electric drives, and advanced control systems to optimize energy consumption.

Safety Features

Safety is paramount in metal forging operations. Ensure the press includes safety features such as emergency stop buttons, protective guards, and automatic shutdown mechanisms to protect operators and equipment.

Leading Brands in Forging Presses

Choosing reputable brands ensures higher quality and better support. Here are some top brands in the forging press market:

  • Schuler: Known for high-precision and innovative forging presses, offering robust solutions for various metal forging applications.
  • Komatsu: Renowned for durable and advanced technology, Komatsu presses are popular in the forging industry.
  • SMS Group: Provides a range of high-performance forging presses known for reliability and efficiency.
  • Lasco: Offers versatile forging presses characterized by efficiency and robustness.
  • Fagor Arrasate: Known for high-quality machines designed for precision and high-speed forging, ideal for complex and high-volume production.

Kitmondo features equipment from these and other reputable brands, ensuring access to reliable and well-supported machinery.

Pricing of Used Forging Presses

The cost of used forging presses varies widely based on factors such as age, condition, brand, and specific features. Prices typically range from several tens of thousands to several hundred thousand dollars. For instance, a used Schuler mechanical forging press might be priced between $50,000 and $150,000, while a high-end SMS Group hydraulic forging press could range from $200,000 to $500,000. Kitmondo’s marketplace offers a variety of pricing options, providing transparency and competitive deals for buyers.


Forging presses are indispensable tools in the metal forging industry, offering efficient and reliable solutions for shaping metal workpieces. By understanding the different types of presses and key factors to consider when purchasing, businesses can make informed decisions to enhance their operational capabilities.
