Forging is one of the most popularly known metal-forming techniques in manufacturing process globally. Materials (metal) are transformed through a plastic deformation stage, which is a fast, energy-efficient, and low waste generation process. The operation may be considered to be economically attractive because of the initial cost of the forge. However, the benefit of an improved forging process far outweighs the loss. The present study aims to review forging operation by investigating techniques and developmental trends over the years, while proffering pathways based on technology and knowledge transfer. An experimental case was accessed on the use of Thyrotherm 2999 EFS SUPRA to exemplify recent development in drop forging technique. Advance computer models will improve product and process efficiency to satisfy the time, cost, and quality demands of customers, and promote competition in the market mix. The forging plant of the future will leave an environment that is safe, clean, and eco-friendly. Operations will be highly automated, and high-level excellence due to nascent technological solution will result in manufactured products having superior consistency and dimensional control.
