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.

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.
