Cold Rolled and Drawn Shapes and Components

Superior Process = Superior Components

A unique process capability in North America, Whitesell possesses an in-line ten station CNC cold rolling mill that can shape a wide variety of standard and special metals into a myriad of custom forms and components.

Wire is rolled/pressed/squeezed into a myriad of custom shapes by up to ten inline stations.

Advantages include:

  • Better Components  Produces shapes with tight dimensional tolerances, improved surface finish and superior physical properties than typically yielded through other machining methods.
  • Superior Complexity   With up to 10 in-line process stations, Whitesell is able to produce far more complicated and demanding multi-stage components in a single processing pass -  Most other rolling mills are 3 to 5 station.
  • Material Savings  Often a prime advantage, Whitesell’s rolling operations can substantially reduce the amount of material needed to produce a part, for lower part costs… and a particular advantage when working with special metal types.

Pre-Shaping of Metal Prior to Cold Heading/Processing


Roll Forming gives Whitesell the ability to pre-shape metal before performing cold heading, cold forging, stamping, wire forming and /or CNC/Screw Machining operations. No one but Whitesell uses in-house steel rolling for the purpose of making fasteners… most widely seen in the marketplace in the shaping and cutting of pierce nuts into shape, among others.
