  • Forgings are stronger.  A casting cannot obtain the strengthening effects that are produced in aluminum by hot working. The strength of a Forging surpasses that of a casting in all predictable strength properties.
  • Forging refines grain structure. A casting has neither grain flow nor directional strength and the process cannot prevent formation of certain metallurgical defects.  The hot working of forge stock produces a grain flow oriented in the directions that require maximum strength. Dendritic structures, alloy segregation’s and other casting imperfections are refined in forging.
  • Forgings are more reliable, less costly.  Because hot working refines grain pattern and imparts high strength, ductility and resistance properties, forged products perform more reliably and are more durable.  As a result of their increased reliability and durability, their overall cost is often much less than a casting.
