The remodeling of the metal in a casting process (bar production) is normally followed by a remodeling of the billet. A very common procedure is massive forming. BONS & EVERS has specialised in massive forming of brass by forging. The forging of brass alloy is a highly specialised subject so that many languages have created their own denomination for it. In Germany you call it "Warmpressen", in France "matricage", in Italy "stampaggio ottone", in Great Britain "stamping" and in the USA "forging".
