Cold Heading

Brookfield Wire manufactures cold heading wire to withstand swedging, heading, and forming with superior quality. Extensively found throughout the manufacturing and construction industries, the cold forming process is an ideal solution for fastener and cold heading applications including bolts, nuts, screws, rivets, nails, etc.

At Brookfield, we manufacture our heading wire with top-grade, raw materials and can draw it to size using our extensive wire drawing services. Additionally, we proudly offer DFARS-compliant materials. Quality is our standard.

Cold Heading Benefits

Cold heading wire and cold forming has many benefits, including flexibility. Components can undergo the “one die, multiple blow” method where the part is hit multiple times while remaining in a single die. On the other hand, components are progressively transferred from die to die.

We call this method multi-die forming. Additionally, cold forming is consistent and limits scrap. High productivity and efficient material mean significant cost and consistency advantages.

Top Benefits:

  • Flexibility

  • Quick Production Times
