Fasteners manufactured by the hot forged method require the use of heat to soften the metal and make it easier to shape, this is called forging and takes its name from the blacksmiths forge. Originally this was the method of producing fasteners, bolts; hot metals were beaten into shape with a hammer. The big change is that the hammer is now a mechanical device and the forge has been replaced by an induction heater.
