Standard and Specialty Pins

Using a range of single- and multiple-station progressive forming machines, Anderson Manufacturing produces standard as well as specialty pins with rounded, chamfered and crowned ends. With these machines, we can also perform cold forming operations including upsetting, blank rolling and pointing. Our cold forming processes ensure high repeatability with reduced scrap.

Anderson Manufacturing specializes in forming slotted, coiled, grooved and solid type pins made from wire stock of materials. We manufacture pins from materials such as aluminum, nickel, silver, platinum and tin. In addition to cold forming, sorting and other value-added services, we also offer bulk and hand packaging services for our cold headed parts. Our streamlined inspection process ensures quality compliance through all stages of production.
