Examples of Part Production
Closed die forming eliminates the parting lines typically found in conventional forging. The result – longer component life.
Net - Shape Forgings
In many cases, cold forging can totally eliminate machining or finishing of multiple surfaces.
T – Nuts
High strength T – Nuts are produced using a combination of cold extrusion and forging.
Heavy – Wall Cups
In addition to thin-wall products, Mint is capable of producing heavy wall cups up to 5 lbs. in weight.
Need a coupling or transmission gear with a blind, internal spline? Mint has the capability and experience to produce splined blanks from a wide variety of carbon and alloy steels.
Mint’s ability to cold form unique shapes can help reduce or eliminate costly machining operations.
Formed, Internal Geometries
Internal features that might typically require broaching or special machining can often be accomplished during the cold forming process
High speed forming combined with coining and piercing allows us to produce “machine-less” brackets.
Venting or Lubrication Features
Internal channels can often be incorporated during the forming process, eliminating the need for costly, additional machining.
Mint has the ability to produce spindles and shafts up to 6 inches in length.
