Forge Shop Workers

Forging changes the properties of metals, increasing their strength. For this reason, forge shops produce items that must withstand heavy wear, such as automobile and aircraft parts, drill bits, and hand tools. Forged products come in many sizes, from door keys to the components of massive machinery. The metal used in forgings is often steel, although forgings can be made with aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, and other nonferrous metals (metals containing no iron).
