Forgings offer more consistent, better metallurgical properties. Selective heating and non-uniform cooling that occur in welding can yield undesirable metallurgical properties such as inconsistent grain structure. When in use, a welded seam may act as a notch that can contribute to part failure. Forgings have no internal voids that might cause unexpected failure under stress or impact.
