Sizing is a metal forging process that is used mainly to finish work that has already been manufactured. It is a cold forming process. Metal sizing uses a lot of force over a short distance, producing very accurate dimensions in the finishing of these parts. This manufacturing technique can also be used to create work with excellent surface quality. Sizing is characteristic in that during the operation, the flow of work material is unrestricted in all directions except that over which the force is applied.
