Metal Forming of a Steel Rod Link
A client in the automotive industry approached Acme Screw Corporation in need of a custom metal formed steel rod link. We used both upsetting and extrusion operations, taking a .375" diameter shaft, upsetting was first performed to amass a .445" diameter by .575" long section of steel. The end was flattened and trimmed using an in-process induction annealing operation to reach our client's exact specifications. The opposite end was then double extruded to reduce the .375" shaft down to the .247" dog while upsetting a .530" diameter collar above the dog. Finally, we bent the part to the client's desired shape, and performed annealing. Maintaining tolerances of +.000/-.006", the finished 1010 steel rod link measured 14.418" with an O.D. of Ø1.022".
