Heading


Cold Heading is another tightly toleranced forming process for metal wire. Autoswage began Cold Heading because it is a complimentary process to ADR in that it makes solid metal pins but has the capability to offer greater diameter changes and different shapes. Also, many Cold Headed parts require a secondary rolling operation to put in threads, grooves or other features.

Cold Heading offers the benefits of fast machine speeds for low labor costs and a forming process which does not produce any scrap for lower material costs.

Typically used to manufacture solid pins, bolts, screws, rivets, specialty fasteners, specialty hardware, and a variety of small metal parts, cold heading allows us to meet a greater range of your specifications for a single part. Specializing in miniature parts, Autoswage's cold heading capabilities complement our cold form rolling process because it allows for tight tolerances and the ability to upset metal into a wider variety of diameters, thus expanding the product line we can offer.
