Complex parts can also be manufactured by welding (fabrication). Depending on part geometry, welding can be a cost effective solution in that no tooling cost is required as is the case for forging or casting (although welding jigs and fixtures are often used to speed up production and ensure greater dimensional uniformity).

Part integrity is more dependant on operator skill than is the case with forging or casting – where many attributes are covered by tooling design. Selection of welding material, welding process and operator skill are all critical elements in ensuring that the final part meets design, dimensional and strength performance.
