Forging to Cold Headed Conversion

Cold heading can be a solution when you need to reduce part costs. With minimal to no changes to your product design you can convert a screw machine or Forged product into something suitable for Cold Heading. In this example the customer needed to reduce costs to better compete in their industry. We helped with the conversion from Hot Forging and CNC finishing to Cold Heading. Even with bringing the part back from overseas to being produced by Slidematic right in the USA we saved the customer $2.50 per part! With their large volumes this was a savings of $300,000 annually. After successfully converting this part the customer onboarded additional work for similar cost savings per part.

Picture1 Picture3 Picture2 Solution: Slidematic teamed our manufacturing capabilities with our distribution mindset and helped with vendor consolidation. We also opened a new warehouse just miles from the customer's plant. These changes resulted in a $75,000 annual savings due to dramatically reduced trucking costs, increased productivity and increased quality with Slidematic being a single point of contact. Picture4
