We were contacted by one of our long time customers in the automotive industry to fabricate the washer illustrated here. This single chamfer flat washer is heavily used with automotive applications. To custom fabricate this washer; we employed our full range of advanced machinery. This included our automatic screw machine, modern CNC and EDM machines, and in-house tool room. We proceeded according to a customer-supplied print, and began fabrication using SAE 41410 cold-finished round steel.
Our facility is known for our precision work, and we were able to manufacture this washer to tightest tolerances of ± 0.010″. After fabrication was complete, we finished this washer with Brinell Hardness 255-321, Rockwell 25, and 34 Plain Finish. This automotive washer needed to meet stringent industry standards and government safety codes. Our team of experts ensured that all relevant standards were met, including ANSI spec B18.6.1.
We were able to complete this washer fabrication job fully within a four week turnaround time. Our client, who has turned to us many times for their fastener supply requirements, was impressed with our results. We now produce 25,000 of these washers every year for them, delivering the completed products to locations nationwide.
