Benefits of Cold FormingSignificant cost savings are often available from cold forming, compared to other alternative methods, depending upon volume of parts produced and other factors.
- Net / Near net shape to eliminate or reduce secondary operations
- Consistency / dimensional accuracy
- Quality / surface finish
- Material savings & elimination of scrap
- Improvement in mechanical properties, greater strength to weight ratio, unbroken grain flow
Because of these benefits, Cold forming can be considered instead of Hot Forging, Casting, Powered Metal, Machined Parts, Weldments and Stampings, or Reinforced Plastics / Composites.
