Why the cold forging manufacturing process matters
Cold forging is a carbon and stainless steelsshaping and manufacturing process where a metal is shaped under high pressure at room temperature. Unlike its counterpart, hot forging, which heats the metal to high temperatures, cold forging minimises heating of the metal, ensuring no internal grain transformation due to heat.
This results in the following advantages:
About AMC’s specialist cold-forged
nuts and fasteners
At AMC, we offer a diverse range of premium-quality nuts in stock and for small-batch manufacture. You can find out more about our product portfolio hereand our surplus stock page here. Our manufacturing capabilities allow us to run short lead time batches tailored to your unique needs. If you cannot see the fasteners you require detailed on this website, call our team today to see how we can meet your needs.
Below are the typical categories of nuts we manufacture with typical applications explained:
Self-locking nuts are designed with a unique internal mechanism to resist loosening under high vibration and torque. Their primary purpose is to ensure that assemblies stay tightly secured under the most dynamic conditions. Given the critical safety implications, especially in applications like aerospace and automotive, the quality of self-locking nuts is paramount to prevent component failure.
Flange nuts have an integrated flange at one end that acts as an inbuilt washer. This design distributes the pressure of the nut over a larger area, reducing the risk of damaging the material being fastened. The need for high-quality flange nuts is vital, as they often find applications in high-stress scenarios where even distribution of pressure and load is essential to prevent material warping or failure.
Projection Weld Nuts:
Projection weld nuts are specialised fasteners with multiple projections on the mating surface, that are designed to be welded onto another component. They are primarily used when one side of the nut cannot be easily accessed for tightening or when an assembly requires a permanent bolted connection. High-quality weld nuts ensure a strong, consistent weld, reducing the risk of joint failures and ensuring the longevity of the assembled parts.
