A frontloading approach in process design to increase energy efficiency in metal forming is demonstrated. Early phases in process design have the potential of high degrees of freedom and cost-effective implementation of energy efficiency measures. However, technical challenges and difficult-to-estimate energy consumption are obstacles. The approach is intended to provide a simple and structured guide through four phases from process consideration through abstraction and measure definition to implementation. Based on hot forging as well as cold roll forming, the method is applied in a simple and practical way.
