Cold Forging

Competence in cold forging

Cold forging is a forming process for metallic products. At SITEK, we produce around 450 million cold forged parts per year. The advantage of this process lies in the high cost savings compared to classic turned parts production. In addition, the forming process does not result in any material loss – and, therefore, no waste. The process is recommended for materials such as aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, stainless steels, as well as case-hardened and heat-treatable steels. We work with wire diameters from 2 to 12 mm up to a length of 120 mm – with tolerances in diameter of 0.025 mm.

Cold forging is mainly used for the production of rotationally symmetrical components such as rivets, bolts, pins or screws. At SITEK, we have constantly developed this process and are now able to efficiently manufacture even more complex, asymmetrical components. Through the targeted insertion of the smallest blind holes, we create space for the directed feeding and assembly of our carbide pins.


Our name stands for safety

Literally speaking: SI-TEK stands for “Sicherheits-Technik” or “Safety Technology” and is a top priority at our company for a good reason. After all, our products are used wherever safety plays a decisive role. At SITEK, you get the complete vertical range of manufacture from development to our own carbide and sleeve production to the finished stud. In this way, we cover the entire value chain in carbide production and offer you exactly the quality you want in every product.

Thanks to our own carbide production, we are able to match the material properties exactly to the respective application. For example, we have developed special types of studs that – in addition to their use in winter tires – are also suitable for bicycle tires and hoof nails. Special SITEK carbide tools, on the other hand, are used on milling machines, for example, to remove road surfaces – such as road markings – or to roughen and clean floors. These tools are highly resistant to wear and are designed for economical use.
