Abstract : Tooling concepts for forging and extrusion processes were developed. The developed tooling has demonstrated production practicality in the manufacture of test parts. Detail test parts have shown grain size reduction in the forging process. The parts also demonstrated that precision forging and extrusion by the high energy rate process can be achieved in fewer stages than conventional processes. Machine operating and safety procedures for the San Diego Dynapak unit were also established. (Author)
