The manufacturing process is a complex one that can be impacted by many factors as suppliers, equipment, management styles, customers’ demand, etc. The more intense there are, the greater the possibility for disruption in the process and changes in the final price. However, there are 4 important factors that determine the final price of a forged component. These are:
- The amount of the used material;
- Forging costs as electricity, investments, tools, etc;
- Post-forging heat treatments;
- Additional operations as shot blasting or quality control tests.
