Cold working refers to the process of strengthening a metal by changing its shape without the use of heat.
This process involves strengthening a metal by changing its shape. This process is also known as work hardening. This metalworking technique involves subjecting the metal to mechanical stress so as to cause a permanent change to the metal's crystalline structure. The SEAL Aviation Structural Repair Team has the tooling and expertise to perform this technique whenever necessary. See the informative video below to learn more about this process.
