Abstract : Preforming, blocking, and finishing dies for use in making a flame shield forging were prepared. Trial forgings were made using these dies to evaluate their capabilities. Preform shapes of varying degrees of complexity were evaluated to determine which would result in the best forging. Blanks prepare from tock processe by th direct-forging technique were swage-forged to dimensions required by the preform die. A trial TZM blank was processed through preforming and partially through blocking operations. A portion of the blocking die cavity was found to have been deformed at this stage. (Author)
