Hot & Cold Forming

Star's ability to form, punch and trim alloy, stainless and carbon steels is supplemented by our forging, machining, heat treat and welding capabilities. Hot Forming - Hot forming is a process in the manufacture of industrial products. Heat is used to soften the metal which is usually a high carbon sheet, bar, tube or wire and then pressure is applied to a die to alter the shape of the metal by performing any of the following operations:
  • Hot Forming of Parts
  • Blank Cutting
  • Trimming
  • Deep Hot Punching
  • Punching
  • Shaping Helix Forms
  • Stamping
  • Deep Drawing
Cold Forming - Cold forming is a process in the manufacture of industrial products. The material is usually a low carbon steel. This provides for tool life, high quality, lower per piece cost, service, accuracy and prototype capabilities.
