Custom Cold Forging Parts from Ming Xiao in China
Ming Xiao Manufacturing is a reliable producer of cold forging parts located in Ningbo, China. They utilize state of the art cold forging techniques to manufacture high precision components out of carbon steels, stainless steels, aluminum and other alloys.
Introduction – What is cold forging?
Cold forging / cold heading is a manufacturing process used to shape metal products without the application of heat. It is typically used to form parts with increased strength or to reduce the overall weight of components. The process is also used to manufacture parts with complex shapes or parts with intricate geometries.
Benefits of Cold Forged Parts:
- Excellent dimensional accuracy and repeatability
- Increased strength due to grain flow lines in the metal
- Lower cost compared to CNC machining from bar stock
- Faster production rates than machining
- Wide range of shapes and geometries possible
The main advantages of cold forging are:
Cold forging makes it possible to craft parts with very high strength, since the absence of heat reduces the risk of introducing weaknesses such as porosity to the part.
Since there is no heat involved, the process makes it possible to reduce the overall weight of the parts being manufactured.
The process of cold forging is much faster than other manufacturing processes like machining. This makes it an attractive option when it comes to mass production of parts.
The main disadvantages of cold forging are:
The tooling and associated setup costs for cold forging are typically higher than other manufacturing processes.
Cold forging is typically limited to materials with low melting points. This limits the material choice when it comes to producing parts.
3.Choice of Design
The design of the part has to be well thought out for cold forging to be successful. Parts with complex shapes are typically not suitable for cold forging.
Cold Forged Blanks for CNC Machining
Cold forging is often used to produce the pre-machined blanks that are used for machining parts. This can help to improve the machining efficiency of the part and reduce the overall costs of the machining process.
The use of pre-machined blanks also ensures that the parts are being made with consistent quality, as the process eliminates inconsistencies that could be caused by variations in the machining process.
The near net shape blanks provide maximum machining efficiency while maintaining extremely tight tolerances. Typical applications include automotive, aerospace, medical, and industrial components.
