The advantages and disadvantages of forging include the following:

Advantages Of Forging

Parts produced by forging are stronger than casted parts or parts made in a machine. During the forging process the internal grain of the part changes its form and continuous forging for a few minutes strengthens the part's characteristics.

Disadvantages of Forging

  • Hot forging prevents work hardening and hence increases the difficulty of performing other machining operations on the part.

  • Producing forged parts involves a lot of expenditure for the machinery, dies, tools and personnel.

  • Some forging requires metal-forming dies, which are required to be precisely machined and heated to properly shape the piece. This is not always achievable by novices or not very-high experienced engineers.

These were pros and cons of forging method.
