Closed die steel forging technical data and secondary operations

Hot die forging tolerance thumb rule (not for precision forging)
< 0.8" in die open direction, +/- 0.02"
> 0.8" in die open direction, +/- 0.03"
The larger part, the looser tolerance; also depends on the part shape.
Part weight range
0.2 to 44 lbs for die forging
44 lbs up for open die forging
Die draft:
5 - 7 degree
Wall thickness range
less than 4"
Tooling construction
All molds are constructed from Premium H-13 or 30Cr tool steel and are heat treated to 50Rc or higher. Tooling is produced in-house, or out-sourced.
Die lifetime
5K - 20K shots per tooling maintenance
belt sanding, grinding machines, brush deburring, filing, sand blast, tumbling, vibration deburring, etc.
Die forging surface roughness (RMS, µin)
Normal lead time:
Tooling and sample: 2 weeks - 3 weeks.
Complicated parts take longer.
Secondary operations
Heat treatment
Magnetic Crack Detection
Zinc plating
Nickel plating


Engineering Assistance

: Based on request, IQE can provide the following services for our customers:
      - CAD model development from your sample;
