To form a brake caliper from billet, a solid piece of cast or forged material alloy has excess material precisely removed under a multi-axis CNC machine until the desired shape is achieved.  This process is used when intricate design details cannot be accomplished from the limitations of a standard forging process.  Calipers made from billet can also be stronger than traditional press forged calipers depending on the material used.
