Forgings offer a broader size range of desired material grades. Sizes and shapes of products made from steel bar and plate are limited to the dimensions in which these materials are supplied. Often, forging may be the only metalworking process available with certain grades in desired sizes. Forgings can be economically produced in a wide range of sizes, from parts whose largest dimension is less than 1 inch, to parts weighing more than 450,000 lbs.
