For axis symmetric products there is no lower cost, lighter weight option than Cold Impacted Aluminum Forgings. Still used in the most demanding applications such as high pressure cylinders and shell casings if your product is axis symmetric there is a good chance it can be designed as a cold impact.
- Tight tolerances make cold impacts a perfect choice for the high pressure canister market
- Many features that would be costly or impossible to machine into the end product are easily forged in, at little to no cost
- Tooling cost and development times are low because of the straight forward processing
