Tips to Assure Quality and Reliability when Bringing Prototype Fasteners to Production

Tips to Assure Quality and Reliability when Bringing Prototype Fasteners to Production

As a manufacturer of products recognized for long-lasting quality, Huron Automatic Screw Company offers clients tips on how to approach finding the right manufacturer.

In a general sense, there are three things that are most important when choosing a manufacturer: quality of product, turn-around time, and communicative accessibility. Quality and turn-around time are obvious things to consider, but having a clear and convenient line of communication is often overlooked, even though it’s just as important as the others. Building a strong relationship with your supplier opens the opportunity to specify precise requirements for prototypes. Bringing a prototype to production is a substantial part of a business plan, meaning that choosing the right manufacturer plays an imperative role in the process.

Consider Local Manufacturers

Many suppliers make the mistake of taking prototype production overseas after finding that overseas suppliers will offer a lower price. Though this is often true, it’s important to realize that you are likely sacrificing things like quality and ease of communication and collaboration. By partnering with a domestic manufacturer, you can feel more confident about the manufacturing quality and labor standards you’re provided. Also, communication errors become much less frequent. Developing such a close relationship gives the added comfort of being able to communicate specific requirements and confront issues through face-to-face interactions.

Another reason to select a local supplier is that you have the option of verifying their reputation in the industry with your peers. Many local suppliers participate in industry associations that will vouch for their reputation in addition to third-party registration programs such as ISO and AALA.

Choose Huron Automatic Screw Company

Huron Automatic Screw Company is a domestic manufacturer known for providing quality turned products, while meeting a variety of customer specifications. Our knack for developing strong relationships with our clients is the perfect example to show the importance of selecting a domestic manufacturer. We work closely with our clients and collaborate to develop products that meet environmental requirements like the need to endure extreme temperatures or pressures. Unlike most overseas suppliers, we are willing to take on low-volume orders and our turn-around rate is exceptional.

In conclusion, the best way to select the right manufacturer when bringing a prototype to production is to do your homework. Find a local manufacturer with a good reputation that provides a quality product and stick with them. Building a close relationship with your manufacturer is by far the best way to ensure that quality standards are met and specific requirements are understood. Huron Automatic Screw Company makes it a priority to form bonds with our clients because we know that this is the best way to develop a mutually beneficial relationship.

Source Your High Temperature Fasteners With Huron Automatic Screw Company

Source Your High Temperature Fasteners With Huron Automatic Screw Company

Huron Automatic Screw Company uses the highest quality materials in order to meet specified temperature and pressure requirements for custom fasteners.

Fasteners and other precision-machined parts are often components with highly important functions that contribute to a more complex overall product. These end-products serve in a variety of industries ranging from automotive to agricultural to medical. At Huron Automatic Screw Company, we provide a multitude of precision-machined products such as threaded fasteners, pins, spacers, and other parts that are expected to reliably serve their purpose in a number of larger components like axles, power trains, suspensions, engines, and steering components. Because of this, it is extremely important that the parts we manufacture meet all specified requirements and are able to withstand the harsh environments they will be subject to.

Using the Right Materials

One aspect that has been consistent with the progression and innovation within the automotive industry is the need for components that can withstand and perform in extreme environments. For example, the higher the energy output produced by an engine generally means the higher the temperature and pressure each component must withstand. When it comes to developing fasteners and other precision-machined parts that require the ability to endure extreme environments, choosing the material plays an important role. Huron Automatic Screw Company uses the highest-quality materials available in developing our products. For instance, we often suggest materials like Inconel or A-286 in cases where components will endure extreme temperatures or pressures.

Inconel – This is a superalloy composed of austenitic nickel and chromium. The result is an oxidation- and corrosion-resistant material suited for service in extreme environments subjected to extreme heat or pressure.

A-286 Alloy – An age-hardenable iron base superalloy. This is also an oxidation- and corrosion-resistant material that can withstand extremely high and low temperatures.

These materials have allowed us to contribute in the development of exciting products in the automotive industry, as well as many others. In addition to material, we offer heat treating, coating, and other useful measures to further strengthen your products.

Huron Automatic Screw Company has earned a reputation as a reliable manufacturer that provides top-quality parts. Our diverse team of technicians bring a wide range of skills and perspectives to the table that add to the reputable image of our well-rounded business. As a long-standing manufacturer, we understand the nuances of fastener manufacturing and pride ourselves on precision, excellence, and innovation.

Customize Fasteners to Withstand Extreme Conditions and Avoid Corrosion

Customize Fasteners to Withstand Extreme Conditions and Avoid Corrosion

Huron Automatic Screw Company works closely with clients to meet precise specifications in providing custom fasteners to withstand potentially corrosive environments.

With the vast amount of options clients have when sourcing a fastener manufacturer and distributor, researching possible choices plays an important role. There are a great number of things to consider when choosing a manufacturer, and the decision will end up affecting the overall quality of the product and standard of service.

When ordering parts that have unique specifications, like the need to withstand extreme temperatures or pressures, quality and service become of significant value. A company’s accessibility turns into an important factor in delivering a high-quality, reliable product. Our team at Huron Automatic Screw Company offers convenient communication and friendly service to our clients. We strive to build close relationships with clients, especially those that need custom components, in order to precisely understand and apply the unique specifications requested.

Customizing Fasteners and Preventing Corrosion

The ability to avoid corrosion is a substantial contributor to the overall quality of a fastener because, in the end, corrosion effects the durability and lifespan of the product. Not to mention, a prematurely corroded fastener can potentially be a safety risk. Generally speaking, fasteners that aren’t specifically manufactured to endure corrosive environments will inevitably have shorter lifespans, and reliability will be compromised. Most fasteners are subject to corrosive conditions simply due to the nature of their purpose, so the decision to take preventative measures seems like an obvious one.

There are various reasons that corrosion may occur, including:

  • Oxidation
  • Pitting
  • Stress
  • Concentration-cell corrosion
  • Galvanization

Manufacturers can prevent, or at least delay, these corrosive factors in several ways. In fact, Huron Automatic Screw Company is well known for delivering products that are designed to withstand extreme conditions. Our team of experts is happy to help our clients develop a product that meets the requirements necessary for the environment it will endure.

Huron Automatic Screw Company can recommend specific material combinations, treatments, external finishes, protective sealants, and lubricants that prevent damage and corrosion in extreme environments. Our wide selection of materials includes metals with higher melting points, increased density, higher solidity at room temperature, etc. Our fasteners are used in nearly every vehicular industry—automotive, trucking, marine engine, off-road, medical—as well as the commercial and industrial pump markets.

Huron Automatic Screw Company is eager to help clients manufacture any and all custom components with special requirements. We accept custom projects and low-volume orders as well, so contact us for a project quote or further information about our processes, pricing, or other products.

Avoid Corrosion Damage with Specialty Fasteners

Avoid Corrosion Damage with Specialty Fasteners

Huron Automatic Screw Company provides custom fastener manufacturing services and specializes in producing components that can withstand extreme conditions such as corrosive environments.

Clients have many options when sourcing a fastener manufacturer and distributor. However, it is important to understand what sets great manufacturers apart from the others, especially when dealing with custom orders. Huron Automatic Screw Company is dedicated to working closely with clients to ensure their custom order is manufactured to meet their exact specifications and application requirements. Our team of experts works with clients to analyze the needs for each component based on its intended function and environment.   We offer custom treatments and manufacturing practices that help make each product stronger and more reliable. For example, we specialize in manufacturing fasteners that will be used in a corrosive environment, under extreme pressure, or in high temperatures.

Prevent Corrosion with Custom Components

Corrosion factors are important to consider when manufacturing a fastener because they can have a significant effect on the quality and durability of the product. If a fastener is not manufactured to specifically handle corrosive environments, it will inevitably be unreliable over time. In general, many fasteners are at risk for corrosion simply due to the service environment. Rather than dealing with the damage in the future, manufacturers can prevent problems by selecting fastener materials that will prevent corrosion in the first place. Our team of experts can recommend specific material combinations, treatments, external finishes, protective sealants, and lubricants that help prevent damage in corrosive environments.

Damage and corrosion can occur due to many different reasons:

  • Oxidation
  • Pitting
  • Stress
  • Concentration-cell corrosion
  • Galvanization

At Huron Automatic Screw Company, we offer an array of fasteners that are specifically designed to perform within corrosive environments. These are commonly made from metals that have a higher melting point, higher hardness at room temperature, or increased density. These fasteners can be relied on to perform under extreme conditions and can be used in a variety of applications within the automotive, trucking, marine engine, off-road, medical, or commercial and industrial pump markets.

We encourage clients to contact us at Huron Automatic Screw Company for a project quote or further information. Custom projects and low-volume orders are always welcome as well as any questions you may have about our processes, pricing quotes, or other products.
