A major utilities company recently contacted us with an urgent requirement for M20 x 60 14.9 bolts for use on pressure critical equipment.
The bolts were manufactured in our onsite workshop to the customer’s specification, with the required chemical & mechanical quality tests being carried out in our fully-equipped Quality department.
The bolts were manufactured, tested and delivered in less than a week, along with full certification.
As well as our extensive stock range of finished bolts and fasteners, we can manufacture non-standard metric and imperial bolts to the customer’s specifications quickly from ex-stock blanks, and can also forge and machine specials in most materials and grades. We can help with any aspect of your fastener requirements. Contact our Technical Sales team with any enquiries.
Here’s another example of our special bolt manufacturing capabilities!
A garden centre in Manchester was having problems with skateboarders skating down the sides of their concrete flower beds, causing damage to the flowers. A solution was needed that utilised the existing tapped holes.
The solution, after consultation with our technical sales team, was an M12 fully threaded bolt (or setscrew, as they are commonly known) with a head that measured 55mm across flats, which was manufactured to the customer’s requirements in our onsite machine shop.
Our state of the art onsite manufacturing facilities enable us to produce special fasteners in Metric, UNC & UNF as well as the older British threadforms BA, BSF & BSW, in a wide range of materials and grades.
Here’s another example of our in-house special fastener manufacturing capabilities, which shows that not all our fasteners are threaded.
These 106mm x 220mm drilled pins were produced using a CNC machine in our onsite machine shop.
The above picture shows the pin inside our CNC machine during the manufacturing process. A hole is then drilled into the pin to accommodate an R Clip. These fasteners were produced for a customer in the Excavation industry.
Alongside our huge range of standard, off the shelf fasteners and fixings, we have extensive fastener manufacturing capabilities and many years of experience in providing high quality fastener solutions. Contact Gary, Stuart or Suzanne on 01942 520260 and we will be happy to discuss any requirements you may have.
