Cold heading is a forging procedure with deformation of the metal. The process is mainly employed for the manufacture of fastener parts in very large quantity. The process has multiple advantages (high speed, economy of material, improved material characteristics, surface condition) but it requires perfect mastery of the entire process. The high pressures exerted between the tool and the part require the use of high-performance lubricants to avoid premature wear and breakage of tools.
