Understanding the Importance of Your Threaded Fastener

Understanding the Importance of Your Threaded Fastener

What is a threaded fastener?

The intricacy of a threaded fastener may not get much attention, but is paramount in the success of every component it fits into. This important factor is a concept Huron Automatic Screw Company takes very seriously. We understand the necessity of precision in each threaded fastener manufactured. The intricacy of a threaded fastener begins with the screw thread and the thread profile. The thread profile is the configuration of the thread on an axial plane with three essential parts including flank, root, and crest. The flank is the sloped surfaces joining the crests and roots. Crest is the top area of the threaded ridge and the root is the bottom area of the threaded ridge. When considering your next threaded fastener project, look no further than Huron Automatic Screw Company because details such as these are of the utmost importance. We have more than 85 years of dedication to training our expert staff in the manufacture of threaded fasteners and machined parts.

Huron Automatic Screw Company Customizes Fasteners to Meet Client Needs

Huron Automatic Screw Company Customizes Fasteners to Meet Client Needs

By building a close relationship with our clients, Huron Automatic Screw Company can meet precise specifications for fasteners with extreme requirements.

Choosing a manufacturer can be an overwhelming task. There are a lot of things to consider and nearly endless options to choose from. The best way to go about this decision is making sure you thoroughly research each option.

The manufacturer you choose has a significant influence on the overall success of your business. The quality of your product, your standard of service, and your ability to meet deadlines are all dictated by the reliability of your manufacturer. Therefore, when ordering parts that have unique specifications or require the ability to withstand extreme environments, it is especially important that you choose a manufacturer with a reputation for being reliable and precise. One of the most effective ways to ensure that unique requirements are met is by keeping an open and accessible line of communication between you and your manufacturer. That’s why Huron Automatic Screw Company makes it a priority to build longstanding relationships with our clients. We’ve found that the better we know our clients, the better we’re able to meet their needs.

Meeting Specifications for All Environments

Fasteners and other precision machined parts are used in countless industries and perform several functions. Due to the wide range of applications, fasteners and precision machined products often need to meet specific requirements in order to withstand the environment they’re subjected to. If a part doesn’t meet those requirements, the part will likely corrode prematurely or be unable to perform its function at all. Our staff at Huron Automatic Screw Company uses the industry’s latest methods and materials to prevent corrosion and ensure that your parts are working properly in extreme environments.

Corrosion may occur for any of the following reasons:

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

Manufactures can prevent, or at least delay, corrosive factors from destroying products in several ways. Huron Automatic Screw Company will often recommend specific material combinations, treatments, external finishes, protective sealants, and lubricants that prevent damage and corrosion in extreme environments. We also offer a wide selection of materials including metals with higher melting points, increased density, higher solidity at room temperature, etc. However, in order for us to design manufacture the best product for you, it is important to remember that communication is key. By clearly and concisely communicating a product’s requirements, Huron Automatic Screw Company’s team of experts can ensure the quality of that product. That is why we make it a priority to build long-lasting relationships with our clients based on open communication. So, contact Huron Automatic Screw Company for customized fasteners and all your precision machined product needs.

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.

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.
