3.4.2.5 CNC Machined Bar and Plate

There is virtually no limit to the shapes that can be produced by CNC machines. In most cases, standard cutting tools are used, so that no tooling is purchased. Processing and material costs are generally high, because much of the purchased stock is removed. Forgings generally exhibit superior directional properties and fatigue performance due to grain flow. Hogouts are useful for complex or precision components in very low quantities. They can also be used on a limited basis for prototyping forgings.
