Custom 4037 Alloy Steel Flat Socket Head Screws With Cadmium Plating


Custom 4037 Alloy Steel Flat Socket Head Screws With Cadmium Plating
We had 5,000 pcs of these custom 4037 alloy steel flat socket head screws produced in the USA for our aerospace customer.  ASTM A574 4037 material was used for the production and the cadmium plating was dome per AMS-QQ-P-416A TYpe II, with thickness at 0.0005-.0008".  Heat treat was performed to get the hardness of the parts to Rc 41-45.  The socket drive was cold formed and the thread rolled, both at the same facility.  Full certs were provided with the parts per our customer's requirements.

Custom Domestic L Anchor Bolts - ASTM A675 Grade 80

Custom Domestic L Anchor Bolts - ASTM A675 Grade 80

We supplied approximately 450 pieces of these custom domestic L anchor bolts to our construction engineering customer, with full certs.  The parts had to be domestic made using domestic melt material as well in ASTM A675 Grade 80 steel, with plain finish.  1/2-13 thread was incorporated on the 15" long leg, with 13.5" of actual thread - having to cut this length of thread on each piece made the production process significantly slower.  The short leg measured 2".

Custom Large Grade 5 Threaded Stud Socket Bolts - 1"-8 Thread With Zinc Clear Finish

Custom Large Grade 5 Threaded Stud Socket Bolts - 1"-8 Thread With Zinc Clear Finish
Total production of these custom large grade 5 threaded stud socket bolts was run at approximately 27,000 pieces using grade 5 steel material per SAE J429 with zinc clear finish per ASTM B633 Type III.  Overall length of the bolts was 6" and a .566-.573" socket drive was incorporated on one side.  Core hardness was tested a number of times to confirm Rc25-34 and proof load testing was done at three separate labs to confirm 85,000 psi minimum.  Full certs were provided with the parts.

Custom Metric Dacromet Coated U-Bolts - M4 X 52.07MM

Custom Metric Dacromet Coated U-Bolts - M4 X 52.07MM
We had 1,100 pieces of these custom metric dacromet coated u-bolts produced using 42CrMo  material with heat treat hardening.  The part was originally designed to be made using 17-4PH stainless steel material but a number of attempts resulted in multiple failures during bending - the material was too hard and repeatedly snapped as the tool pressed the 90 degree corners.  As a result we switched to the 42CrMo material with heat treat to obtain the required hardness and strength, with a combination of the dacromet coating to achieve the corrosion resistance needed.  Turned out to be a much trickier part than originally anticipated!
