What are the advantages of forging process?

Compared with other general machining of the same parts, forging has a finer grain structure and reduces internal defects such as pores.
For parts with complex shapes, forging is more economical than machining and is suitable for mass production, reducing workpiece costs.

What is the main points when designing parting line?

The parting line should be on the same plane as much as possible, and the upper and lower molds should be symmetrical.
The position of the parting line should be avoided as much as possible in areas with deep cavities, because the deep cavity may cause the forging die to break or defects, making that area difficult to form.
Also, side thrust should also be avoided, because the side thrust will cause mismatch during forging, which will reduce the service life of the forging die and affect the accuracy of the forging part.
