Cold Heading of a Steel Stand Off
At Acme Screw Corporation, we are experts at applying cold heading to create unique or unusual parts. When a client in the appliance industry approached us in need of cold heading for a 1010 steel stand-off, our experts knew exactly where to begin. The square and collar ends were formed on a conventional cold header. It was then fed into a rod heater to extrude the threaded section down to the right size and to form the collar above. We performed a final trimming operation to create two flats on the collar at the threaded end. We then plated the part with zinc with yellow dichromate, finishing it as a securing anchor. Based on our customer's specifications, the finished part measured 5.617" long and had an O.D. of Ø1.024", while maintaining tolerances of +.000/-.010". They were thrilled to find that our methods produced the exact results they were hoping for, and proved economical.
