Forging refines defects from cast ingots or continuous cast bar. A casting has neither grain flow nor directional strength and the casting process cannot prevent formation of certain metallurgical defects. Pre-working forge stock produces a grain flow oriented in directions requiring maximum strength. Dendritic structures, alloy segregations, and similar imperfections are also refined in forging.
