Pressure-assisted injection forging (PAIF) of thick walled tubes is a process configuration by which hollow components can be formed from tubular materials without material collapse. By FE simulation and metal forming experiments, this configuration was evaluated with reference to the range of the precess, pressure requirements, die stresses and product quality.
