Short summary
Rotary forging is a continuous local pressure plastic forming technology. The equipment to realize the rotary forging technology is called the rotary forging machine. In this paper, the finite element analysis of the frame of the rotary forging machine is carried out, and then the structure and size of the machine frame are optimized. Finally, the experimental results show that the grain size and hardness of the formed workpiece are improved, which shows that the optimization scheme is reasonable.
