Cold forming

Cold forming refers to the plastic forming of metals. This operation takes place substantially below the recrystallisation temperature of the material. However, cold forming can also be performed above room temperature. For example, the process of forming steel at temperatures of around 200°C is still classified as cold forming. This operation is used, for example, during cold rolling, deep drawing, bending and flanging.

These processes place very high demands on the wear resistance and stability of the tools and mountings used. High surface qualities are required.

Overview of all applications

Ceramic tools and components are already replacing traditional materials such as tool steel and tungsten carbide in specific applications today. Thanks to their exceptional hardness and wear resistance, components made from high-performance ceramics from our portfolio are used in the following areas, for example:

  • Flanging rollers

  • Seaming rollers

  • Calibrating rings

  • Stamps

  • Deep drawing dies
