Learning Objectives

  1. Distinguish between the various types of mechanical drawings relevant for forging operations, and where in the forge shop process planning workflow each of these prints are developed.
  2. Identify various types of inspection and testing methods utilized by the forging industry, including 3D inspection and non-destructive testing.
  3. Relate a variety of forging-specific callouts or notes on inspection prints to the inspection process used to compare measured values against nominal, or design, values.
  4. Recognize common industry guidelines for tolerances applying to forgings produced on forging machines as well as hammer and press forgings.
  5. Verify knowledge retention by applying skills learned to additional inspection drawing examples.
