Sleeve Coldworking Processes

  • Cross Reference Tool +

    Cross Reference Tool converts WCI to FTI and vice versa
  • CA Tooling +

    Specifically designed for high strength steel and titanium aircraft applications, CA tooling has a slightly higher level of applied expansion
  • CB Tooling +

    CB Tooling is used in production and rework aircraft applications with aluminum and mild steel, it is commonly specified for aircraft service bulletins, and is available in standard sizes
  • CR Tooling +

    The CR Tooling series was originally developed for rework aircraft applications, but can also be used for new fastener holes
  • CW Tooling +

    CW Tooling is used in aluminum and mild steel aircraft applications, the CW process provides approximately 3% applied expansion, (low interference) for moderately stressed areas.
  • CMX Tooling +

    CMX Tooling is equivalent to Sleeveless (Split Mandrel) Tooling for aircraft applications
