Fastco Industries uses the latest thread rolling technologies offered by equipment manufacturers, Saspi and Sanmei. Whether it is roll forming, SEMS products, special rolled features or standard threads, we are ready to meet and exceed customer expectations.
Thread rolling is a process for forming external screw threads. Threads are formed into a blank by pressing a thread rolling die against the blank in a process similar to knurling. These processes are used for large production runs because typical production rates are around one piece per second. Our thread rolling produces no fine metal chips and less material is required because the blank size starts smaller than a blank required for cutting threads. Typically, there is a 15 to 20% material savings in the blank by weight.
With the thread rolling equipment that we employ, we can more cost effectively form threads in a single pass. Rolling the material into the die rather than removing the metal with a single point tool also creates a stronger, more accurate thread.
Fastco’s thread rolling services are individually tailored to meet your cold headed fastener requirements, with additional machining and secondary operations in-house to support your parts production from start to finish.
