This part, referred to as a coupler, originated as a casting and was designed to be crimped to a seat drive spline. The cast parts were cracking and our customer needed a more robust part. With some development, our engineering team was able to design tooling for our equipment that allowed us to manufacture the part complete off the cold former, minus the ears that are stamped. The depth of the extrusion is well beyond what textbooks will tell you regarding limitations of extruding metal in a cold forming process. But, with a strong engineering and manufacturing team, we successfully developed the part and provided the solution our customer needed.
