Cold forming produces finished parts that are superior to their machined versions in
less time and at lower cost. With machining, up to 80% of the original material may
have to be removed to produce the required part geometry. Our specialized and multi-stage
cold forming techniques enable us to completely eliminate machining operations for most
Both symmetrical and non-symmetrical part features can be readily cold formed instead
of machined. Complex internal features, such as square blind holes, that are difficult or
impossible to machine with conventional methods can be created directly at high speeds
using our cold forming techniques.
CWR maintains equipment capable of producing hundreds of small, high tolerance, parts
per minute. Parts such as gears, shafts, studs, pins, collars, spacers, and specialized
fasteners can be rapidly produced through our cold forming techniques.
Cold forming techniques can also help ensure the quality and reliability of your
company's end products. Our custom tooled processes produce parts that:
|Meet or exceed technical specifications|
|Are significantly stronger than machined parts of the same geometry|
|Exhibit superior shock and vibration resistance|
|Are suitable for exposed and/or cosmetic applications|
|Are smooth finished for safety and ease in handling|
Through the application of advanced cold forming techniques, CWR can help your company
minimize costs for:
Cold forming techniques are environmentally friendly - producing little or no material
Since cold forming produces parts that are stronger than the equivalent machined
versions, it may also be possible to substitute lower cost materials or to reduce part
size or weight while meeting the original design strength requirements.
