Custom Manufacturing Practices Enable Components to Resist Damage Even within Harsh Conditions
When sourcing custom fasteners or components, it is important to find a manufacturer who is able to provide materials and processes that help products resist damaging corrosion, heat, and pressure.
Are you looking for a company that can help you take your prototype products to production? At Huron Automatic Screw Company, our expert team of technicians can help analyze the requirements for each project to ensure the highest quality and product reliability. Our company has a long history of working with unique products that require special materials or design elements in order to withstand harsh conditions such as stress, heat, or friction within their working environment. This includes products that are exposed to corrosive environments.
When it comes to manufacturing custom product, there are many factors that have a significant impact on fastener design. These include the temperature it will be exposed to, the pressure or friction it must be able to withstand, and possible corrosion that may occur. Each of these variables must be considered when producing a custom component. For example, fasteners that will be exposed to corrosive substances or environments require special materials, treatments, external finishes, protective sealants, or lubricants to prevent damage.
How can Corrosion Occur?
There are many different kinds of corrosion that can occur on a fastener which include:
- Stress corrosion
- Concentration-cell corrosion
Oxidation is the most common form of corrosion and is known commonly as rust. Steel components are at risk for oxidation and should be protected. Corrosion can also occur as a result of stress or friction. Because many service environments pose a risk for corrosion, it is better to prevent these problems rather than have to address damage in the future. There are many different material combinations that can reduce or resist corrosion. These may include metals that have a higher melting point, higher hardness at room temperature, or increased density. These fasteners may be used in a variety of applications within the automotive, trucking, marine engine, off-road, medical, or commercial and industrial pump markets.
