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.

Combat Corrosive Environments with Specialized Fasteners

Combat Corrosive Environments with Specialized Fasteners

High-performance fasteners are built to withstand harsh environments in which friction or corrosion may be a challenging factor.  

At Huron Automatic Screw Company, we work closely with clients to collaborate on all aspects of the production process from prototype to completion. Throughout this process, our experts help analyze the needs and requirements of each project based on the product’s function and environment. We have experience working with materials that are required to withstand harsh conditions such as stress, heat, or friction. For example, one important consideration to make during this process is whether or not the fastener will be subject to possible corrosion.

Improve Durability and Performance in Corrosive Environments

Corrosion factors are an important consideration to make because they can have a significant effect on the quality and durability of a fastener. There are a variety of different kinds of corrosion that can occur including oxidation, pitting, stress corrosion, galvanic corrosion, and concentration-cell corrosion. However, the most common form of corrosion is due to oxidation, commonly known as rust. Steel structures and fasteners are at risk for oxidation and should be protected accordingly. Other common forms of corrosion occur when the metal fastener is put under stress, experiences friction against another metal or material, or is galvanized and eroded by another metal.

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.

A select range of metal fasteners are specifically designed for corrosive environments in which high-performance materials are required. 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.

Clients who are looking for a reliable company to provide in-depth collaborative manufacturing services for their next project should contact Huron Automatic Screw Company. We understand the nuances of fastener manufacturing and pride ourselves on precision, excellence, and innovation.
