Cold Forming Services

Cold Forming Sample Parts

Anderson Manufacturing produces standard and custom cold formed parts for many applications, from automotive and electronics to medical. We offer over 2,300 products including a variety of specialty pins, terminals, rivets and other proprietary value-added parts. With over 40 years of experience in manufacturing cold headed components, we provide custom solutions for all types of fastening needs. We stock materials including carbon and alloy steel, copper, brass and common grades of stainless steel.

Our facility is equipped with a range of cold forming machines, from 1 die 2 blow machines to 6 die 6 blow progressive headers, which is rare in the industry. These multiple-station cold formers enable us to produce intricate cold formed components through a series of upset and extrusion stations. Metal blanks with cutoff sizes up to 1" and lengths up to 6" can be processed with minimum or no material scrap.

Anderson Manufacturing's cold metal forming operations offer significant advantages such as design versatility, high production rates, repeatability and increased strength of components. In addition to multi-station cold heading, we offer secondary services such as plating, painting and heat treating. To support our customers' cost-saving efforts and improve manufacturability, our staff provides expertise and suggestions for appropriate materials, tolerance and part configurations.
