Isothermal Forging Technology – UPSC Prelims

  • Isothermal forging is hot working process to work on super alloys that have low forge ability.
  • Here the work piece is maintained at its maximum elevated temperature throughout the entire operation.
  • This technique is developed by DRDO.
  • This technological breakthrough involves developing complex titanium and nickel based alloys that can withstand temperatures exceeding 1000 degrees Celsius.
  • It would help India in developing jet engines with thrust to power a combat fighter.
