Bigelow Components Corporation Offers Cold Heading Process as Time and Money Saving Alternative to Swiss Screw Machining


(Springfield, New Jersey, October 14, 2010) – Bigelow Components Corporation, a leading manufacturer of cold-headed and stamped custom components for more than 50 years, offers cold heading as an alternative process to Swiss screw machining for small precision metal parts, such as electronic components, contacts, contact rivets, electrodes and miniature components.

Brett Harman, president of Bigelow Components Corporation stated, “It’s often been our experience that companies who need small parts continue to Swiss screw machine them simply because they’re not aware that any alternative exists. In most instances, not only is cold heading less expensive, it generally results in a more stable and precise part, a faster process, and far less material waste.”

The cold-heading process uses a punch and die to apply force to a metal blank. This process can produce a variety of head shapes, including square, rectangular, octagonal, conical and diamond and it results in faster set-up times and substantially less down time to process a job. In addition, tooling is less expensive and there is no waste, making the process far more cost efficient.

Harman commented, “We’ve been able to offer significant savings and a better part to a number of our customers who had never considered cold heading as an alternative to Swiss screw machining. From pole pieces and electrical contacts to connector pins and miniature parts, we’ve been able to demonstrate that cold heading can offer a more efficient and faster production process while maintaining the high quality flawless functionality required of these types of parts.”
