Excellence In Equipment and Technical Support

Welcome to Cold Formers USA, LLC

Cold Formers USA is an American based company, committed to offer Japanese Machinery which by tradition is in general of the highest quality. We offer new and re-built machines, as well as technical support and field service.


Tanisaka cold heading machines are built with rugged dependability for 3 shift high speed production for 10 years without rebuild. Our 3/16 one die two blow machine model TNST-4 weighs 6,600 lbs.

Tanisaka cold headers feature a heavy duty counter balance system - it is not necessary to bolt our machines to the floor. Our cold headers will not "walk" or vibrate when producing parts at 400 pieces per minute.

Model types include: One Die, Two Die and 2 Die 3 Blow. Sizes range from 4mm to 10mm in most model types.



  • First and second transfer assembly are a cassette for out of machine set-up. (THT and TPH models).
  • Split die block allows easier and quicker die resetting compared with a solid die block. (Solid die blocks are available).
  • Total protective cover for optimum noise reduction, safety and easy accessibility to critical areas of the machine.
  • Two-Button start system and cover Interlock System for maximum safety.
  • Heavy Duty Mitsubishi Main Drive Motor featuring a rugged air hydraulic brake for total instant control, start and stops.
  • Unique, overbuilt, balancing system featuring specially weighted crank shaft to ensure stable operation at high speed. The machine does not have to be fastened to the floor.
  • Precise closed Bushing Cut-off system.
  • Electric Overload Detection System, to sense and detect change in heading pressure allowing instant shut down.
  • All specially hardened and ground cams, punch blocks, die blocks, cutter arms, etc...
  • Oil Pressure Switch and Air Pressure Switch to insure normal operating pressure before running the machine.
  • All Omron electrical components, controls, magnetic switches, solenoids, etc. readily available in the United States and from our spare parts stock.
  • Pneumatic control of feed rolls for positive clamping control and pressure on feeding of wire.
  • Process monitor for production, pre-set and total parts counters.
  • High frequency face hardening on ground finishes combined with internal forced lubrication system which guarantees high strength and wear resistance.
  • Air actuated sensing system for knockout pin.
  • In the event of a problem in the die area, this will not result in breakage of the K.O. lever as the airline will detect loss of pressure and shut the machine off instantly.
  • Fixed precision ground punch block drive system.
  • With this system if there is wear in the punch rocker area only a new roller is replaced on the machine. There is no need for constant adjusting.
  • Precision Gears.
  • All our gears on our machines are precision ground tooth helical gears as opposed to straight tooth gears made on a gear machine.
  • Unique kick out lever system for knockout pin.
  • We construct a kick out lever located in the rear of the machine, which controls the knock out pin, which kicks the part out of the die. We feature a system whereby the cam runs the entire lever and has an adjustable roller. Our kick out cam is "cam forward and cam back". It is not a spring loaded system.
