Open-die – turning blanks into screws

Affordable metal forming technique for adjusting screws, cylinder-head screws, pivot bolts and other products

In order to keep the production costs low, we use the “open-die” metal forming technique in many cases. During this process, blanks are pressed into a half-shell shape to enable a tapered cross section. This metal forming technique even permits slot widths in the µm range, thereby ensuring not only cost-effective production but also combination machining with special thread types. Adjusting screws and pivot bolts, for example, are quite different, but the open-die technique is ideally suited to implement both at low cost.
