MFG.com performs a 5-point inspection on all engineered parts and RFQs to ensure quality and enhance your quoting experience Other Forging: Forging is the process of heating metal to plasticity, and applying force to shape the part as required. The force applied in forging may be by hammering, the use of a power hammer or, more commonly, a press. Forging changes the crystalline properties of the metal being forged in ways that improve the metal's physical properties, such as strength, ductility and durability. Forged parts are very strong in relation to their weight and are commonly used in aircraft.
