To achieve high quality open die forged workpieces, the monitoring and controlling of workpiece properties throughout the open die forging process is of particular importance. Due to the fact, that these values cannot be measured directly for the inner part of an ingot during the process, fast calculation models are used to evaluate workpiece properties online.
