The cold heading process has many advantages over machining, including reduced material scrap, which in turn leads to lower production costs. With our innovative technical expertise and advanced heading and secondary equipment, Chicago Rivet has created significant cost savings for our customers through cold heading as compared to alternative production processes. Cold heading also allows for close repetitive and consistent tolerances at high speed, which is optimal for large volume requirements. With the proper engineering design, we also have the ability to produce intricate designs and shapes that may not be cost effective with other manufacturing methods.
