The injector housing has two functions, namely, positioning the injector and protecting it from coolant. The conventional manufacturing process of the injector housing by machining has some drawbacks such as considerable loss of material and environmental pollution caused by excessive use of cutting oil. In this paper, precision cold forging is proposed as a new manufacturing process in order to improve these issues. A numerical study was conducted to compute the metal flow, strain, load and other process variables using DEFORM-2D, a finite element analysis(FEA) code for metal forming. Two process methods were investigated and optimal conditions were computed with the FEA code. A prototype was manufactured from the optimal process method and the metal flow and hardness were obtained from the prototype.
