A forming press, commonly shortened to press,
is a machine tool that changes the shape of a
workpiece by the application of pressure.
A hydraulic press is a machine using a hydraulic
cylinder to generate a compressive force.
It uses the hydraulic equivalent of a mechanical lever
Forging is a manufacturing process involving
the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces.
Forging is often classified according to the temperature
at which it is performed: "cold" or "hot" forging.
