The Many Benefits of Cold Formed Parts
Cold forming – a process where room temperature material is forced into a die – is one of our specialties. Because the cold forming forces are very high (500 ton), an infinite number of shapes can be created, all at very high production speeds. They can also be produced very economically, even at relatively low volumes.
The advantages of cold formed parts include:
- Creation of complex shapes, often by assembling two or more pieces into a single piece.
- Minimal scrap. Because there is no cutting to achieve the desired form, cold formed parts produce almost no waste.
- Stronger components. Cold forming can raise the tensile strength of the component, and because there is typically no cutting as in a screw machine process, there are no stress risers or fracture points.
- High speed manufacturing, up to and many times over 120 parts/min. In comparison, screw machining and other processes manufacture components at speeds of 10-40 parts/min.
