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.
