At Associated Fastening Products, Inc., our tradition of providing standard and custom fasteners extends back to 1989. Customers from various industries rely on us to provide superior quality products and services at highly competitive prices. Our vast selection of machinery allows us to create a full range of fasteners. We take pride in our position as a full line supplier for the OEM market, with many distribution points throughout the USA which provide maximum flexibility. We meet demanding specifications with high accuracy and short lead times, as exemplified in the project illustrated here.
A customer in the building industry needed a custom machined full body woodscrew. This product was difficult to machine; its large size put it at the maximum range of our machinery. We used 1022 steel, running it through our state-of-the-art multi-station cold heading machines. In spite of their large size, our expert personnel and equipment completed these woodscrews with an uncompromising level of accuracy, attaining tightest tolerances of ±0.005″.
Our client was very pleased with the results of this project. From prototyping to full production, we were able to complete and deliver these full body woodscrews with a turnaround time of just four weeks. These products were of the highest quality, fully meeting all the requirements of ANSI B18.6.1. We now produce 600,000 of these oversized woodscrews per year for this customer.
