    Cold Headed Fastener Sorting & Inspection

    Fastener inspection is standard operating procedure for cold headed fasteners that are installed on assembly lines or for safety critical parts. Fastco Industries’ inspection process is an integral part of providing manufacturers with the ability to consistently supply and satisfy their customers with 100% inspected and certified cold headed fasteners. As such, Fastco inspects fasteners and tooling for dimensions, surface analysis, thickness, hardness, holes, cracks, and much more.
