Casting is a process of forming a part just like forging or rolling are also processes of forming steel. Cast steel can be any grade of steel poured into a sand mold to form a part like a water pump housing in your car. To be classified as steel, the mixture usually contains less than 2% carbon. Cast iron is a mixture that generally contains more than 2% carbon. It also can be poured into a sand mold. There are many grades of iron. Many metals can be cast into shapes like the air intake plenum on your car is probably cast aluminum. Bronze statues are made by pouring molten bronze into a mold. The process used to create a part has an effect of that part's mechanical properties. A casting is weaker than a forging but certain parts cannot be formed by forging. The large diameter rolls used in steel mills to roll steel into thinner plates or sheets is a hot rolled steel that has probably been forged into shape then machined into the final diameter. Some rolls are fabricated from hot rolled steel plates into shape. This allows the ability to add internal cooling paths to keep the roll from overheating.
