…where advanced technology, knowledge and proven experience drive results.
ACF was established to provide the cold forming industry with professional engineering support for all brands of machines as our main product.
ACF is supported by 50 years of tool engineering and part development experience in the cold forming industry. Twenty of those years have been associated in the production tool manufacturing segment producing hundreds of design-build-part development packages on multi-station machines to efficiently produce many types of cold formed parts from coiled wire or prepared slugs.
Aware of how dies fail in production, we draw from our wealth of experience to create greater production efficiency through a combination of proven tool design techniques that work and the art of a balanced and well thought out forming sequence. We design tools that can be manufactured at a reasonable price and will provide you with longer tool life.
2D and 3D metal forming simulations are available for forming sequence analysis. Tool stress analysis is also available for problem solving poor tool life. All ACF designs are fully modeled and assembled in 3D for accuracy before they are manufactured. Our overall process results in lower tool costs and less time grooming the tools once installed in your machine.
We offer the choice to order tools from your toolmaker or ACF can recommend a qualified supplier. Various options for part development assistance are available on all jobs.
