By choosing wire our customers have increased yields and decreased scrap in a wide array of cold heading applications including small-calibre and recreational ammunition.

By joining together our wire and cold forming expertise, Luvata Special Products offers the flexibility of choosing more fully formed products that can be utilized right into production.  From slugs to cups or tubes to tips, and from the first draw to fully formed casings, these high volume, precision-made products are custom made to your exact specifications.

Advantages of Cold Heading or Forming

  • Fully cold forming hardens the alloy
  • Material cost savings in comparison to machining
  • Faster process than machining

Cold heading is ideal for manufacturing large quantities of parts for high volume users.
