    FORGING, AS A METAL WORKING PROCESS, HAS the ability to form the material to the desired component shape, while refining the cast structure of the ingot material, healing shrinkage voids, and improving the mechanical properties of the material. The amount of subsequent machining should also be reduced, although this depends on the geometry of the finished part and the forging processes used.
