Q
What is a forging? How does it differ from a casting?
A
A forging is metal that has been heated in order to soften it then pressed, hammered, or otherwise formed into a shape. All forgings begin as cast starting stock. Forgings benefit from the forming operation which enhances their overall toughness and fatigue resistance.
