Sinking

Encyclopedy Index

Sinking is a forging technique whereby two-dimensional sheet stock is formed into a three-dimensional object by hammering it into a concave form. The technique is often used as a precursor to further raising. While sinking is a relatively fast method, it results in stretching and therefore thinning the metal, risking failure of the metal if it is 'sunk' too far.
