The enormous range of raw materials for cold forming

Any ductile metal or malleable alloy can be cold formed.

Working with low- and high-carbon steels, aluminium and titanium and non-ferrous metals

Choosing the right metal for a cold formed part is generally governed by the required technical specifications and material properties of the end product. In general, low alloyed materials are used in cold forming, as these tend to respond better to plastic deformation. That can apply to steel, copper, aluminium and titanium alloys. Many well-known steel alloys containing chromium, molybdenum and nickel are also highly suitable for cold forming. Thanks to their particular grain structure and high ductility, highly alloyed austenitic chrome-nickel steels are also suitable.
