How is the difference between casting and forging

the difference between casting and forging:

1. Casting: the process of melting metal into a liquid that meets certain requirements and pouring it into the mold. After cooling, solidification and cleaning, the casting (part or blank) with predetermined shape, size and performance is obtained. The basic technology of modern machinery manufacturing industry. The cost of blank produced by casting is low, which can show its economy for parts with complex shapes, especially those with complex cavities; At the same time, it has wide adaptability and good comprehensive mechanical properties. However, there are many materials (such as metal, wood, fuel, molding materials, etc.) and equipment (such as metallurgical furnace, sand mixer, molding machine, core making machine, desander, shot blasting machine, cast iron plate, etc.) required for casting production, which will produce dust, harmful gases and noise and pollute the environment. Casting is a metal hot working process that human beings have mastered earlier, with a history of about 6000 years. In 3200 BC, copper frog castings appeared in Mesopotamia. From the 13th century BC to the 10th century BC, China has entered the heyday of bronze castings, and the technology has reached a quite high level. For example, the 875 kg Si Mu Wu Fang Ding of the Shang Dynasty, the Yi zunpan of marquis Zeng of the Warring States period, and the transparent mirror of the Western Han Dynasty are all representative products of ancient casting. Early casting was greatly influenced by pottery. Most of the castings were tools or appliances for agricultural production, religion, life and other aspects, with strong artistic color. In 513 BC, China cast the first recorded iron casting in the world - the Jin Ding (about 270 kg). Around the 8th century, Europe began to produce iron castings. The popular point of the industrial revolution in the 18th century is that after the phenomenon of preventing relative sliding between two contact surfaces, castings have entered a new era of serving large industry. In the 20th century, casting has developed rapidly. Ductile iron, malleable iron, ultra-low carbon stainless steel, aluminum copper, aluminum silicon, aluminum magnesium alloys, titanium based, nickel based alloys and other casting metal materials have been developed successively, and a new process for inoculation treatment of gray cast iron has been invented. After the 1950s, new processes such as wet sand high-pressure molding, chemically hardened sand molding, coring, negative pressure molding, and other special casting and shot blasting appeared

there are many kinds of casting, which are customarily divided into: ① ordinary sand mold casting, including wet sand mold, dry sand mold and chemical hardening sand mold. ② According to the molding materials, special casting can be divided into two types: special casting with natural mineral sand as the main molding materials (such as investment casting, mud mold casting, shell mold casting in foundry, negative pressure casting, full mold casting, ceramic mold casting, etc.) and special casting with metal as the main molding materials (such as metal mold casting, pressure casting, continuous casting, low-pressure casting, centrifugal casting, etc.). The casting process usually includes: ① preparation of mold (a container for turning liquid metal into solid castings). The mold can be divided into sand mold, metal mold, ceramic mold, clay mold, graphite mold, etc. according to the materials used, and can be divided into disposable mold, semi permanent mold and permanent mold according to the number of times of use. The quality of mold preparation is the main factor affecting the quality of castings; ② The melting and pouring of casting metal, the casting metal (casting alloy) pushes towards an unsupported center instead of pulling the spline, mainly including cast iron, cast steel and cast non-ferrous alloy; ③ Processing and inspection of castings, including removal of foreign matters on the core and surface of castings, removal of sprue and riser, chipping and grinding of burrs, seams and other protrusions, as well as heat treatment, shaping, rust prevention treatment and rough machining

2. Forging: it is a processing method of applying pressure to metal blanks by forging machinery to produce plastic deformation, so as to obtain forgings with certain mechanical properties, certain shapes and sizes. One of the two major components of forging. Through forging, the loose as cast metal and welding holes can be eliminated, and the mechanical properties of forgings are generally better than those of castings of the same material. In machinery, with high load and working conditions, severe important parts sprouted in the aluminum age of automotive materials. Except for rolled plates, profiles or weldments with simple shape, forgings are mostly used

forging can be divided into: ① open forging (free forging). Using impact force or pressure to deform the metal between the upper and lower buttresses (anvils) to obtain forgings that are expected to continue to grow at an average annual compound growth rate of 6%, mainly including manual forging and mechanical forging. ② Closed mode forging. Forgings are obtained by pressing and deforming metal blanks in a forging die chamber with a certain shape, which can be divided into die forging, cold heading, rotary forging, extrusion, etc. According to the deformation temperature, forging can be divided into hot forging (the processing temperature is higher than the recrystallization temperature of the blank metal), warm forging (lower than the recrystallization temperature) and cold forging (normal temperature). The forging materials are mainly carbon steel and alloy steel with various components, followed by aluminum, magnesium, titanium, copper and their alloys. The original state of materials includes bars, ingots, metal powders and liquid metals. The ratio of the cross-sectional area of the metal before deformation to the die sectional area after deformation is called the forging ratio. Correct selection of forging ratio has a great relationship with improving product quality and reducing cost
