Cold forming capabilities

Published:  09 January, 2018

Dawson_Shanahan.jpgDAWSON SHANAHAN reports it has further boosted its capabilities in cold forming by investing in a high-throughput Formax machine and says this takes the company’s investment in new machinery to £500,000 for the third year in a row and additional investments have been made in the company’s turning, milling and grinding capabilities, as well as in metrology and cleaning systems. The Formax FX54M is a four-die, high-speed cold former that will boost output while extending Dawson’s offering to customers.

The Formax FX54M, which is larger than any other of Dawson’s cold forming machines, will extend the company’s capability in two ways: its increased size will allow Dawson to make larger cold-formed parts; and its throughput of up to 190 pieces per minute will help raise overall production capacity.
