    Different types of forging defects, Causes and their remedies

    Defects occur in forging despite it being one of the best manufacturing processes that give better mechanical properties. These defects need to be examined and can be prevented. Forging defects can be controlled by careful consideration of work material volume, good designing of the forging die, and the process. To avoid this forging defect, care…
