Cold Heading - Cold Forming

Cold heading Forming is defined as a metal forging process used for rapidly producing enlarged (upset) sections on a piece of rod or wire held in a die. The resulting shape of the upset portion conforms to the shape of the die cavity. Workpieces are not heated prior to heading. Upsetting may be done in one or more strokes. Applications include fasteners (bolts, threaded components, rivets and pins) and valves. Upset portion conforms to shape of the punch and/or die cav
