We supply countless parts with a variety of different thread locking patches, thread locking pellets, and thread locking strip applications like these alloy steel set screws with nylon strip. These thread locking features provide for a vast variation in applications we can accommodate. We can typically provide samples to allow our customer to test different types, lengths, and combinations prior to committing to a full production volume.

This is one of our small custom plain steel u-bolts made domestically to our customer's drawing and tolerances. Only 20 pieces were required and 5/16-18 rolled thread was requested with a .06 X 45 degree chamfer requested and undersized first two threads. The center to center dimension was set at .81", inside length at 1.38" and thread length at .62". Lead time was approximately 4-5 weeks since the customer was not in a rush to get the parts sooner. Faster lead time was available in needed.

These are custom brass bushings we supply our automotive customer on a recurring blanket purchase order basis, with monthly releases based on their usage. They are manufactured overseas in Taiwan and maintain +/-.009 tolerance on the outside and inside diameter, as well as the length. The inside diameter is set at 0.500 inches, the outside diameter is at 0.688 inches, and the overall length is set at 0.875 inches. Production runs at approximately 10,000 pieces at a time with a lead time of 120-150 days including ocean freight transit from Taiwan.
These are custom stainless threaded studs, fully threaded at 6-32 diameter and pitch. They were cut and chamfered on both sides to 7/8 inch lengths and production was run at 550 pieces +/- 10%. Lead time for these custom threaded studs was approximately 4-6 weeks but faster options were available to our customer if urgent need arose. All parts were passivated to complete the production process and were supplied with material certs and a certificate of conformance.

Custom Metric Socket Cap Screws - M2-0.4M X 6MM Socket Head Cap Screws In DFARS Compliant 303 Stainless Steel
These are M2 X 6MM DFARS compliant socket cap screws whose simplicity in look is misleading to say the least. We were tasked to replicate our customers existing samples and the combination of the hex broach dimensions and depth together with the countersunk angle required a different approach than a standard flat socket head screw. The part was initially made like a standard socket cap screw without the countersink, broached to required depth, and then machined down for the countersunk angle. Finally the part was then threaded and passivated.

These are 6-32 female/female custom aluminum standoffs measuring 4 inches in overall length and tapped 3/8" deep on each end. Outside diameter is 1/4". Production was done overseas for optimal cost and lead time for the first release is typically at 120-140 days. This part we supply on a revolving annual blanket release arrangement that allows our customer to spread out the cost over the year as they use the parts.
