ABSTRACT
The paper overviews the research on roll forging processes in the last two decades. Given the broad scope of this problem, the overview focuses on processes in forging plants, omitting those performed in metallurgical plants. Three rolling processes are discussed in detail: longitudinal rolling, cross rolling and helical rolling. Each of the three techniques is discussed in terms of the main research problems and potential directions of future development.
