FE simulation was applied to study the material flow during infeed rotary swaging. The neutral plane according to the process parameters was investigated and compared with experimental results. A single forming stroke was analyzed precisely by using small time points of 10-4s. For analysis the essential steps between the first contact of wire and forging die and the last contact before the die opens again are represented. In that range the feed velocity is eliminated and the neutral plane can be observed as spatial velocity at nodes in the axial direction equal 0 mm/s. During a single stroke the location, the geometry and the orientation of the neutral plane is changing.
