The Steel Cold Heading Process

Cold heading is a metalworking process that utilizes high speed, automated equipment to form metal (usually in the form of wire or strip) into finished parts. Complex parts with tight tolerances can be created quickly and cost-effectively through the cold head fabrication process. Additionally, cold headed forgings can be repeated with near-perfect precision in quantities in the tens of thousands. The steel cold heading process is comprised of various stages provides work hardening of the base metal. The cold headed stages include:

  • Spool Insertion
  • Progressive Die Engineering
  • Part Production

The results of the steel cold heading manufacturing process are finished parts that are stronger than the original material from which they’re made.

Offshore Cold Heading Industrial Applications

Sun Fast’s cold heading partners can produce parts in a wide variety of sizes. This including those with numerous metal makeups, and those with custom configurations to meet the needs of almost any application. Due to these options, we serve clients in a broad spectrum of industries including: 

  • Medical & Dental – We provide extremely small cold headed metal parts made from, or plated with, biocompatible materials for dental implants and medical devices.
  • Automotive & Aerospace – Sun Fast also provides cold headed forgings for the automotive and aerospace industries that are made from carbon steel or other high strength materials.
  • Electronic Devices – Cold head fabrication is also used to produce solid and bimetal contact rivets for electronic devices.

The unique, “custom” nature of the cold heading process allows for almost unlimited possibilities in part design. 

Why Choose Offshore Cold Heading Fabrication?

There is a substantial investment cost associated with purchasing and housing the machines that produce cold headed steel parts and components. In addition, professional employee labor costs to operate the machines that produce cold-headed products can be extremely high. Other considerations include the additional square footage housing costs associated with storing the machines, as well as machine upkeep and repairs.
