Metal Forming Services, Manufacturers and Companies
Metal manufacturing encompasses a wide range of methods that are used to alter the condition of metallic materials. Metal processing is most often performed for two main purposes: to shape the metal, such as in metal spinning and metal stamping, or to alter the state of the metal’s surface, such as in galvanization or coating. Of these two purposes, metal forming is more common, and it includes processes like metal injection molding, metal casting, metal extrusion and more. In addition, there are many processes that are more unique and specialized. For instance, there are material specific processes like aluminum extrusion or processes that specifically form sheet metal. Although there is a wide variety of metal manufacturing processes, some of the most common methods of metal processing for industrial applications include electroless nickel plating, metal etching, roll forming, water jet cutting, die casting, forging and metal stamping.
Types of Metal Forming:
Aluminum casting is the process of creating aluminum shapes with a die caster. Die casting is a very commonly used metal shaping process that is used to create metal shapes for use in industrial, commercial and consumer products contexts.

Cold headed parts are finished or stock shapes produced through a specialized process more broadly known as cold working. Although cold heading is a popular option, it is part of this larger group of manufacturing processes also referred to as cold forming. As the name would suggest, none of these techniques involve heat, but instead materials are processed and formed at ambient temperatures. While the name might imply that the temperature is further reduced for cold metallurgical processes, most are carried out with machines and materials left at room temperature.

Our special fasteners service a variety of industries such as automotive and electrical. Our goal is to satisfy our customers.
Forgings are metal parts produced through a forming process in which the metal is given a particular shape through the application of a compressing force. The pressure causes plastic deformation of the metal and alters the grain flow to follow the shape of the part. This gives the part a more dense structure and increases its directional strength. Although the metal is often preheated prior to the forging process, it is never melted or poured as in the die casting process.

Metal spinning, often called spin forming, is a cold metalworking process in which a flat metal disc affixed to a lathe mandrel is rotated at high speeds and formed by shaping tools. A metal spinner applies pressure to the rotating disc, which is called a blank, using several tools, which are called spoons, to shape the metal over a mandrel. This pressure can be applied by a single tool or by multiple tools. The finished product should have no wrinkling or warble, and the process is quick and cost-effective. An average metal piece will take only five to ten minutes to be formed, and very little metal waste is produced per part.
