  • Forgings have grain oriented to shape for greater strength. Machined bar and plate may be more susceptible to fatigue and stress corrosion because the machining process often cuts across the materials natural grain pattern.  A well designed forging will yields a grain structure that is oriented to the part shape, resulting in optimum strength, ductility and resistance to impact and fatigue.
  • Forgings yield lower scrap; greater, more cost-effective production. Forgings, especially near-net shapes, make better use of material and generate little scrap. In high-volume production runs, forgings have the decisive cost advantage.
