Understanding Some of the ‘Nuts and Bolts’ of Your Threaded Fastener

Understanding Some of the ‘Nuts and Bolts’ of Your Threaded Fastener

Huron Automatic Screw Company makes each machined part with the utmost precision and expertise.

When choosing your threaded fastener provider, there are important factors to consider. Three important qualities include the utmost precision in the finished product, the timeliness of production, and the one-on-one care with each client. At Huron Automatic Screw Company, this is exactly the kind of service you’ll receive. We pride ourselves as a complete threaded fastener provider with expertise in every piece of precision-machined part produced. Knowing how these products are made offers an understanding of what goes into every machined part we provide. Take a moment to browse the Huron Automatic Screw Company website at www.huronauto.com and learn more about the manufactured products and services we provide.

Knowing the crux of your threaded fastener

In the build of every threaded fastener, there are basics to consider that Huron Automatic Screw Company has come to perfect throughout the more than 85 years in the threaded fastener arena. Some considerations include how to measure the bolts, the best choice in materials to use, and the lubricants and finishes required for our customers specific threaded fasteners. Huron Automatic Screw Company considers every detail for the most precise machined parts. These details include understanding the bolt or stud diameter. The diameter of the bolt includes the “nominal” thread diameter. Two important diameters of every bolt are the major and minor thread diameters. The major diameter is the largest outer diameter of the thread and the minor diameter is the deepest part of the thread. Huron Automatic Screw Company takes every component from prototype to production with these simple, but vital essentials in mind. Bolt length is another important aspect. This is the length of the threads from the underside of the bolt head to the tip of the shank. Fractional pitch or thread count for fractional threaded fasteners is another important aspect when measuring critical threaded components. The more course the thread, the lower the pitch number. The finer the thread, the higher the pitch number increases.

With a clear understanding of the needs of each valued customer, from material to manufacture, every piece is built to precise specifications by our team of qualified experts at Huron Automatic Screw Company with continued one-on-one communication throughout the project. More considerations include metric fasteners that use a metric pitch format such as M10 X 1.5. The pitch number specifies the distance between adjacent threads and is measured in millimeters where the basic size specifies the major diameter of the bolt. Huron Automatic Screw Company manufactures the highest quality precision-machined parts for each of our valued customers and this attention to detail is of the utmost importance. Torque value is another critical component and this value is used for proper tightening for every threaded fastener. This is especially critical when it comes to high-stress areas such as connecting rods, cylinder heads, and wheels. For every specific application, a certain clamping load is required for proper component retention and performance and torque value plays a significant role. Accompanied with torque value is the lubricants used. Torque values are established based on the use of lubricants. These lubricants provide a smooth installation and reduce the risk of rust seizure. These are just some of the tools of the trade Huron Automatic Screw Company has come to perfect.

In gaining an understanding of the “nuts and bolts” of threaded fasteners, it’s easy to see why precision is a must and why Huron Automatic Screw Company takes it so seriously. For your complete threaded fastener source, rely on Huron Automatic Screw Company and see why we are leaders in the industry of manufacturing precision-machined parts.

Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Education Efforts in the Industry

Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Education Efforts in the Industry

Huron Automatic Screw Company stands behind the Precision Machined Products Association as their Education Foundation encourages youth to explore opportunities in the industry.

The Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) is one of the major networking associations for our industry. They help to connect manufacturers so that we can share new methods and machinery to continue pushing the industry forward as a whole. Within the PMPA is their Education Foundation whose mission is “To promote and fund education, training and career opportunities in the Precision Machining Industry.” Recently, the Education Foundation released an inspirational video showing the industry’s overwhelming, but discrete, function in society. To watch the video click here.

A Look into the World’s “Best Kept Secret”

What most people visualize when they think about the precision machining/manufacturing industry is a row of warehouses with loud machines and assembly lines producing a lot of smoke. However, that hasn’t been the case for decades. Nowadays, jobs in the precision machining/manufacturing sector are quite complicated and technical with never-ending opportunities to learn, apply, and innovate. In the video released by the PMPA, industry professionals explain the immense responsibility the industry holds when it comes to providing parts for nearly every other industry. The precision machining industry transforms great ideas into applicable products, using brilliant minds and cutting-edge technology.

In the video, Barry Butters, from Gateway Technical College, refers to precision machining as possibly the “…world’s best-kept secret.” Most people don’t realize how much precision machining contributes to some of the most important global industries. From the arts to the sciences, precision machining provided the parts for Jimi Hendrix’s Fender Stratocaster as well as the parts for NASA’s latest space mission. The video, which runs less than three minutes, does a great job of defining the importance of precision machining while providing some truly incredible visuals of the latest technology used in the process.

Spreading the Word

The PMPA’s Education Foundation has three essential goals:

  • Establish partnerships with high schools and technical colleges to develop training programs.
  • Collect, maintain, and communicate information about training programs to the public.
  • Support and communicate the development and revision of standards within the industry.

In addition to this, the Education Foundation has grant funds available to assist individuals, schools, and companies for education and training activities in precision machining. It’s very important to spread awareness to youth that precision machining is a great industry to be a part of. Huron Automatic Screw Company joins the PMPA in encouraging people to spread the word about one of the most fascinating industries in the job market.
