Abstract : Several commercially available and some experimental forging lubricants were evaluated for use in the 1050F temperature range to determine their potential for lowering the effective interfacial friction between the workpiece and the forging tooling during the forging process and correspondingly reducing the total process loads. Two die temperatures, 500F and 800F, were employed in the study. These temperature ranges were chosen to allow the evaluation of lubricants for processing materials in the intermediate temperature range, particularly the thermomechanical processing of titanium alloys. The evaluation was made by forging rings of the titanium alloy, Ti-6Al-4V, between open flat dies. (Author)
