Cold heading is a well-known industrial method where metal wire is driven into a punch and die set and shaped without material loss. Cold heading wire is processed to combine formability, ductility, and long-lasting strength.
This makes it perfect for producing fasteners and fixes including bolts, screws, pins, rivets, studs, and tie rods. Simple metal blanks are cut from wire or bar and then transported to a punch and die station where they are pressed into the shape of the punch and die set in a completely enclosed manufacturing process.
The Global Aluminum Cold heading wire Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Cold heading applications make use of the high-strength alloy 7075 aluminium wire. For superior resistance to heading and shaping, Bob Martin Company wire develops cold heading wire.
Moulding wire into a precise shape without the use of heat is a part of the cold heading wire process. When a piece of wire that has been put into a die is struck, the force of the blow causes metal to pour into the constrained die chamber.
The cold forming procedure, which is widely used in the manufacturing and construction sectors, is the perfect answer for applications like cold heading and wire fasteners.
Flexibility is one of the numerous advantages of cold heading wire and cold shaping. Metal wire components may be subjected to the “one die, multiple blow” technique, in which the part is struck repeatedly while being held in a single die.
On the other hand, the metal wire components are gradually moved from die to die. Multi-die forming is the name given to this technique.
Cold forming also minimises scrap and is uniform. There are almost no scraps left over because the material is flowing to fill the die chamber and the tooling’s dimensional tolerances are set.
The cold heading wire technique increases yields over other common processes while decreasing costs and raising production.
