Cold-Heading, Custom & Standard Fasteners

Cold-Heading and Fasteners Cold-heading is a process that uses high speed automated "cold-headers" or "part formers." This equipment has the ability of transforming a wire into an intricately shaped part with tight and repetitive tolerances using a tooling progression. The cold heading process is volume specific and the process uses dies and punches to convert a specific "slug" or blank of a given volume into a finished intricately shaped part of the exact same volume.
