Abstract : The requirements for large forged parts were examined. Future requirements indicate that the ability to forge parts to closer tolerances (greater part definition) in hard-to-machine materials would provide an economic advantage. A 200,000-ton hydraulic press represents the most logical step up in future press capability, since it could produce parts from high-strength materials with plan areas and part definition similar to that now available in aluminum on existing large presses. Studies should be initiated to evaluate the concept of a single, high-pressure cylinder for actuating such a press. (Author)
