    Advantages of Cold Heading

    Cold heading is a method of forming metal in progressive steps into net-shaped or near net-shaped parts.

    • The grain is not cut in the process. The grain flows through the contour of the part resulting in a stronger part compared to a cut grain.
    • Very accurate control of dimensions: Tolerances of ±.025mm on contained diameters and ±.125mm on most lengths.
    • High speed production – up to 200 parts per minute
    • Efficient use of material – very little waste
    • Wide variety of formable materials
    • No shavings or bar ends
