In case of the welding process, a conventional production method of gate valve, it has a merit of light weight, but also a demerit of high production cost and an impossibility in mass production due to work by hand. However, in case of the forging process, it has economic merits and can take a mass production process, too. The main focus of this paper is the optimization of preform in the forging process. This paper proposed an optimal design to improve the mechanical efficiency of gate valve made by forging method instead of welding. the optional design is conducted as application of real response model to Kriging model using computer simulation. Also, from verification of the response model with optimized results we were confirmed that the applications of Kriging method to structural optimum design using finite element analysis and equation are useful and reliable.
