A high level of resistance and energy-efficient machining – these are just two of the countless benefits of solid cold forming. Our fastening elements are machined without cutting. This offers tangible benefits compared to cutting CNC machining.
The basic material – the wire – is machined in a strand. When machined in a cold state, the original structure of the wire remains intact. The fibres are not destroyed, because the material is compressed in a cold state. This means that the machined elements have an even higher level of resistance, up to class 6.8. CNC milling causes sharp edges which can suffer from notching. In these areas, the material is weakened and cannot support such high loads.
Efficient production, perfect properties
Low material consumption as well as the efficient use of energy make solid cold forming an excellent method. Fastening elements with excellent properties can be produced using as few work steps as possible.
