  1. Forged parts possess high ductility and offers great resistance to impact and fatigue loads.
  2. Forging refines the structure of the metal.
  3. It results in considerable saving in time, labor and material as compared to the production of similar item by cutting from a solid stock and then shaping it.
  4. Forging distorts the previously created unidirectional fiber as created by rolling and increases the strength by setting the direction of grains.
  5. Because of intense working, flaws are rarely found, so have good reliability.
  6. The reasonable degree of accuracy may be obtained in forging operation.
