All forged metals start as either a cast or extruded billet, extruded is preferred. The billet is then either cold, warm, or hot forged, to strengthen the internal grain structure. Aluminum is normally hot forged to near-net shape. Once the desired metallurgical properties and near-net shape are achieved, the forged billet can then be hardened, finish machined and polished.
