Forging vs Casting & Fabricatings

What you can gain from converting castings & fabricating to forgings:

• Cost efficiency. When you consider all the costs that are involved from procurement to lead time to rework, then downtime and further quality issues, forgings are far more competitive compared to what castings or fabrications might offer.

• Shorter lead time. Multi-component forgings can be combined into single piece forgings, resulting in reduced process time. Near net shape forging parts have less material to be machined off, resulting in reduction of machining time too!

• Better quality. Forging process brings in longer life span by providing better strength, fatigue endurance, and toughness to your products. In addition, you do not have to worry about annoying defects like cracks, oversized grains, and porosities anymore!
