Our process creates products that are stronger, more durable and better engineered. Please inquire today if NSS' superior cold forging process can help you become leaner, smarter, and more efficient.
COLD FORGed performance
NSS has more than 40 years of experience in net shaped cold forged products with extensive in-house engineering design and production capabilities, including:
- 30 cold formers and thread rollers with the capacity for 3/8" (9.5 mm) to 1 1/2" (38.1 mm) wire diameter and an ability to use prepared slugs up to 2.2" (56 mm) in diameter
- Solution development and engineering design
- Tailored tool manufacturing
- Extensive material knowledge and experience
- During the development cycle unheated wire or slugs are forced into a die using extreme pressure from cold formers.
- The cold formers are typically horizontal and are set up to have multiple forming stations.
- Each station contains a punch and die that form a characteristic of the finished part.
This process allows for NSS and our clients to benefit from the advantages found in cold forging, which include:
Less Scrap / Material Savings
Elimination / Reduction of Additional Machining Operations
Improved Strength, Mechanical Properties, Grain Flow
Improved Surface Finish Versus Machined Products
High-Speed Production (35 to >300 parts per minute)
The cold forging process is characterized by high-speed production, reduced waste, and stronger materials. NSS works to develop parts that are tailor made for each industry and project, ensuring that exact specifications are met.
NSS manufactures custom cold forged parts for a variety of markets, including:
