Out In The Shop

May 08, 2014

Out In The Shop Often our tooling requires grinding to tolerances in the millionths. Ruben has been with us for over 10 years and is an expert at precisely ground tooling. He’s the guy who figured out the tooling for our 0-80 keyed lock miniature security screws. Standard security screws don’t go that small, much less keyed lock ones. We figured out another solution along with this; how to keep these little screws… Read more »

May 01, 2014

Big John Working On A Small Keyed-Lok “Big John” (maybe you can figure how he got that name) is working on a small size screw with a big Keyed-lok® drive.

Apr 17, 2014

Smoking Hot (I know you're thinking the guy, but it's the fastener) Few know what cold heading is. It begins with cold wire. This is headed (head put on), and then threaded (called roll threading).

Oversized Heads And Unique Lengths

Apr 03, 2014

Oversized Heads And Unique Lengths It's good to have someone on your staff with experience (proved by his gray hair). Our machinist, Pete, makes difficult parts perfectly to the customer’s unique specifications. He attached our oversized Raptor™ head to a short body, making it an M6x4mm oversized button head machine screw. Why would a customer want this? It’s for securing thin TV’s in a Hotel chain and there was no depth to… Read more »

Good Innovation Doesn't Come Easy

Mar 25, 2014

Good Innovation Doesn't Come Easy Our customers often come to us with a request. Usually it’s to make a fastener different, better, or cheaper. We try to oblige, even if it costs us. Unfortunately, granting our customers’ requests never goes smoothly. We talk about it, look on the internet, and ask those who think they know. Often, the advice we get sounds easy, so we try it. It turns out to be sort of like golfing when your swing… Read more »
