Rotary press forging (RPF) has been used in the last century, but it produces many defects in the forgings. The author has invented the rotary hammer forging (RHF) process to reduce such defects. RHF is a multi-axes compression process where the material is partially and incrementally deformed by the action of several repeated hammering blows, while the produced deformation region is swept through the whole area of the workpiece. The aim of the present work is to study the effects of rotational speed on the forgings produced by RPF and RHF to compare between the two processes. It has been found that as the rotational speed increases the mushroom effect is constant in RHF while it is greater and increases in RPF. As the rotational speed increases, the twist angle increases in both RHF and RPF, but it is bigger in RPF. These results demonstrate the benefits of using RHF instead of RPF.
