Metal cold forging is a manufacturing process that involves shaping metal parts at or near room temperature using compressive forces. Here's a simple explanation:

Metal Stock:

Cold forging starts with a piece of metal stock, typically a rod or wire.

Die Design:

A die, or mold, is designed with the desired shape of the final part.

Die Setup:

The metal stock is placed in the die, and the die is closed to create a cavity around the stock.

Forging Process:

Compressive forces are applied to the metal stock within the closed die, causing it to take the shape of the die.

Cold Working:

The metal is deformed and shaped without reaching high temperatures, which is why it's called "cold" forging.

Complex Shapes:

Cold forging is capable of producing complex shapes with high precision.

Applications:

Commonly used to manufacture parts for automotive, aerospace, and other industries where high strength and precision are required.

Advantages:

Improved material properties, such as increased strength and hardness.

High production efficiency and minimal material waste.

In simple terms, metal cold forging is a process of shaping metal parts at or near room temperature using compressive forces, resulting in high-strength components with complex shapes.
