Cold forming is a process used in the manufacturing of fasteners. This process produces components with high strength and little material waste. This process is also cost-effective, making it an ideal choice for fastener manufacturing. However, because the cold-forming process is different from machining, it is important to select a Fastener Company that has experience in this process.

Cold heading or cold-forming is a process of applying force to a metal blank. The material flows into a die, where it assumes the desired shape. This process minimizes material waste and is more reliable and eco-friendly than other methods of fastener manufacturing. Cold heading is often used in the production of SEMs and threads, but is most commonly used for cold fastener products.

Cold heading and cold forming have numerous uses, including the production of joints, tempered alloy steels, and structural steels. Cold heading allows the production of fasteners at high speeds and with minimal waste. This method also saves materials, which is vital to a company's bottom line. Cold heading fastener production can reach speeds of up to 100 parts per minute.

Cold heading is a process of forming metal in several steps. The first step is cutting the wire, which is then pushed into a die. The die is then pounded into shape by a series of powerful hammers and dies. The hammers and dies are very powerful and the process yields a high quality finished part with minimal scrap. This process also improves the grain flow of the metal part, resulting in stronger components and lower overall costs.
