Engineered Fasteners & Cold Formed Components

Cold forming allows for the production of complex metal components from room temperature wire at hundreds of pieces per minute. This results in significantly lower production costs than any other method. The process allows for consistent, precise tolerances to ensure lot uniformity, as well as offering greater component strength, hardness and metal design integrity.

Technology Leadership

With our fundamental business premise to always offer the customer the best value available in the global marketplace, Whitesell has constantly positioned itself at the leading edge of technological capability. From 1 die 2 blow heading machines, right through to state-of-the-art seven station FORMAX parts formers and large part forging, Whitesell possesses the definitive range of contemporary cold metal forming capabilities available today.

Component dimensions range from M2.5 (#3) up to 101.6mm (4”) in diameter and 914.4mm (3’) in length... all from one globally harmonized manufacturer.

Blended Processes

With Whitesell’s leadership, cold forming is becoming recognized as a superior advancement over conventional metal forming techniques offering several key advantages over hot processing and machining from solids, including better strength, hardness, consistency and uniformity, lower material usage and in being a far more efficient method of production. With today’s technology, cold forming typically represents the lowest cost production technique currently available, and can be utilized to reduce cost on a much larger range of shapes than was possible only a few years ago.

Whitesell further leverages these advantages for its customers by blending leading edge cold forming production capability with in-house Multi Axis CNC precision machining, screw machining and a full range of vertically integrated secondary finishing operations.
