Speaker: Nadine EL KOSSEIFI, COLDFORM® Product Manager


On the engineering side, designing and manufacturing the right fastening solution may turn into deep challenges among which are:

  • Cost, performance, weight of end product
  • Assembly techniques: rivet/bolt/screw versus welding
  • Impact of the joining technique on the design phase

The fastening solution must address high level functions such as durability, weather tightness, aesthetics and structural performance.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how COLDFORM® can help optimize the production and control the entire manufacturing process: forming sequence, thread rolling, piercing/punching, heat treatment and mechanical joining.

Several case studies will be presented and we will show you how to:

  • Predict grain flow
  • Detect defects prior to production
  • Improve die life by performing die stress analysis
  • Model pre-drawn wire

Furthermore, application cases will introduce the benefits of automatic optimization applied to fasteners and typical examples will be addressed such as: what is the optimum screw head shape to guarantee the best in-use performance?
