What We Do
Professional Forging Manufacturer of Fasteners and Hardware Tools
Forging is the process of applying an external force to make metal parts have the desired shape. This is the basic operation of most fasteners and hardware tools to obtain the desired shape. Cold forging is the process of forming metal parts by external force under environmental conditions. It is usually carried out at or near room temperature. On the other hand, hot forging is the process of forming metal into a predetermined shape in a hot state.
CXIN Forging is the industry’s leading manufacturer of fasteners and hardware tools. We use the latest machinery, hot and cold forging processes, and internal design engineering to provide the expertise and capabilities to meet your specific fastening requirements. For efficiency, quality and safety, cooperate with CXIN Forging to develop your hardware tools and fasteners. We will reduce risks for your supply chain.
Production of High-Quality Fasteners
Fasteners are one of the most basic components in engineering and construction, but their production has become an advanced, high-tech, multi-step process. Fasteners can come in many different sizes and shapes, but the basic production process usually remains the same. The first step is cold-forging the steel into the correct shape and then heat-treats it to increase strength and surface treatment to improve durability. For more advanced fastener designs, the production process can be expanded with many additional steps.
As one of the leading suppliers of cold forging fastener products, CXIN Forging starts with the selection of steel. According to the requirements of ISO9001, there is a grade of steel has been standardized throughout the industry. Use a fast hydraulic press to cold forge the steel into the correct shape. Cold forging ensures that fasteners can be produced quickly, in large batches, and with high uniformity.
For more complex bolt designs that cannot be formed by cold forging alone, some additional turning or drilling may be required. Turning involves rotating fasteners at high speeds while cutting steel to obtain the desired shape and design. Drilling can be used to drill holes in fasteners. If needed, some fasteners may also have washers attached at this stage of the process.
Heat treatment is a standard process for all fastener products. Because heat treatment changes the characteristics of steel to make it harder, it is easier and more cost-effective to perform threading in advance. However, the thread after heat treatment will mean better fatigue performance.
Production Hand Tools & Hardware
Hand tools and hardware are widely used in almost all industries. Whether you think about construction, automotive manufacturing, mechanized agriculture, or even in the medical fields, you will find a lot of hand tools and hardware. Each of the areas is unique, and thus quality, strength, toughness, and precision of the forgings may vary. For example, you will need hand tools and hardware with superior mechanical properties for the automotive manufacturing industry.
Some of the common forged hand tools and hardware, include pliers, hammers, sleds, wrenches, and wire-rope clips, sockets, hooks, turnbuckles, and eye bolts, are common examples. These are tools that you can find in most industries that use machinery in their operations or in manufacturing machinery and equipment for other industries.
Surgical and dental instruments are also often forged. Most of the orthodontic instruments used by the dentists and in surgery rooms are cold-forged, but there is also a range of them formed using other forging methods such as hot and warm forged. However, cold forging is increasingly growing to be the go-to forging technology.
There are also special hardware tools for electrical transmission and distribution lines, such as pedestal caps, suspension clamps, sockets, and brackets that are commonly forged for strength, dependability, and resistance to corrosion. Most of these tools are made from steel and aluminum alloys that almost match the same strength and durability as steel.
At CXIN Forging, we manufacture and supply fastening and hardware tools for industries, including the medical field. We use the latest and most advanced hot and cold forging technology to provide products that exceed your expectations. Contact us today for all your fastening and hardware tools needs.
