About Us

Advanced Cold Forming, LLC is owned and managed by Richard Weinandy, focused on supplying high quality engineering contract services directly to companies in production cold forming and tool manufacturing.

If you are unable to hire an engineer on a full-time basis or your engineering team is over-extended or needs assistance troubleshooting jobs, this is the answer for you. Small tool manufacturers can also benefit from contract engineering services allowing them to offer design and build packages to their customers or solutions on an as-needed basis for improving die- performance using proven-design-techniques that work.

Mr. Weinandy’s cold forming experience spans decades directly in tool design engineering, tool manufacturing and part development: 16 1/2 years in tool design and part development at National Machinery Company in Tiffin, Ohio, three years working in production cold forming at RB&W Corp. in Mentor, Ohio, 20 years as Director of Engineering for a large production tool manufacturer. In all, experience on producing over 3,000 design-build-part development packages on multi-station machines to efficiently produce many types of cold formed parts from coiled wire or prepared slugs. This depth of hands-on experience provides our customers with many advantages unmatched by our competitors.

In addition to comprehensive technical services, ACF offers you a commitment to customer satisfaction that goes beyond high product quality and attention to your delivery requirements. You can depend on us to do whatever it takes to help you solve a tooling problem – as part of our overall service.
