Injection forging is a nett-shape manufacturing process which enables the forming of complex component-forms that are difficult to form by conventional metal-conversion processes. The state-of-the-art of the research in this subject is reviewed with reference to different process configurations, forming limits, energy/pressure requirements, process modelling and product forms.
