Compare Forging to Machining
Save on raw material cost and machining time by using near netshape forgings. The example to the right shows that with machining a 98.14 lb block of raw material is required. With the forging, only 24.03 lbs of raw material are required.
Improved Strength Characteristics
The forging process can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain (illustrated below) flows to follow the shape of the part. As a result, the grain is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics.
