THE NEED FOR IMPROVED MECHANICAL PROP-erties and soundness in forgings has been a driving force in both steel making and ingot development, and it is perhaps significant that at one time many steel forging companies operated integrated facilities starting at the melt shop, and besides the forge, including heat treatment equipment, machine shops, and extensive mechanical testing and nondestructive examination facilities. This trend has changed with the increased complexity of steel melting practices and the growth of steel melting shops that provide stock for forging houses, either in the form of ingots or shapes from continuous casters.
