Productivity Improvement is one of the most important strategies for every enterprise. Head cold forging is a widely common production process which can achieve economical processes and less energy consumption. Die is the major key of the forging process but how to perform an effective design, needs several years of experiences or using engineering tools for assistance. This paper proposes the collaborative die design and analysis by combining engineering methods and industrial experts to correct problems and to validate a new and complex design. DEFORM is used to investigate suitable parameters by guidance from the expert. One of the classical problem in the head cold forging is to make a small long complex stud. It is found from simulation that a five step of punch with suitable taper angle is the most effectiveness.
