Fasteners and bearings are very important in most manufacturing industries, especially fasteners due to their compact size and strength. They help secure and assemble parts together, and having customized fasteners can be a great deal for most industries because it allows them to design parts and innovate new structures that can be unique and modern. Blue Diamond which has experience over 40 years is beginning to customize fasteners by special orders for industries that need them. Typically they are doing small orders of 500 and over for complex and unusual fasteners, they are being manufactured using hot and cold forging techniques which is much lower in price than to actually manufacture them from scratch.
Customized fasteners can be of a wide range from changing the shape of the head to having eccentric heads, also there are some fasteners that use a thread locking compound and nylon inserts. Custom fasteners can be expensive and can take a long time to manufacture a unique shape using traditional machining techniques, this is why Blue Diamond is making custom fasteners for aviation industry at a low cost using alternative techniques. At their Hampshire engineering firm they are specializing in designing and manufacturing these parts for automotive industries and supplying them to aftermarket sales which then can be supplied to any customer in any industry.
