Forgings also offer better response to heat treatment. Castings require close control of melting and cooling processes because alloy segregation may occur. This results in a non-uniform heat treatment response that can affect the straightness of finished parts. Forgings respond more predictably to heat treatment and offer better dimensional stability.
