Wyandotte Industries was requested to produce a custom manufactured carbon steel nylon insert locknut that would be used for a hydraulic cylinder application. Employing our Acme Gridley screw machining technology, which was able to meet tolerances as low as (±) .015 of an inch, we were able to fabricate these locknuts based off a customer supplied print to measure precisely 1-3/4 inches in overall height and 2-3/8 inches across flats or OD.
Wyandotte Industries tapped all 1 ½-12(3B) threads for these locknuts. We also added all nylon inserts. Each nut possessed a 125 microfinish. To ensure that the locknuts met client specifications, we performed a series of in-process inspections and examined the thread fit, proofload, and prevailing torque of each nut. Once we were assured that these custom manufactured nuts satisfied all of our client’s unique product requirements, we delivered our customer’s hydraulic cylinder nuts to their facility in the midwest.
A client from Kansas recently requested Wyandotte Industries to custom manufacture a series of steel spacers that would be used in agricultural equipment applications. Employing our Acme Gridley screw machine, which was able to meet a (±) .005 of an inch precision tolerance, we blanked each spacer, preparing the parts for heat treatment and plating.
After manufacturing was complete, we quenched and tempered all units, providing the spacers with a RC30-40 surface hardness and then plated the parts with zinc and yellow dichromate. When finished, the spacers measured Ø 13/16 of an inch ID, Ø 2 inches Rd, and 7/16 of an inch thick. The parts also weighed .250 pounds each and possessed a 125 microfinish.
Wyandotte Industries additionally performed a series of hardness tests and in-process inspections to make certain that the parts fulfilled all client expectations for design and quality. After ensuring that the steel spacers met with all of our customer’s precise product specifications, we delivered these parts to our buyer’s facility in Kansas.
Using a combination of our Acme Gridley screw machines, our pellow slotting equipment, and our tapping equipment, Wyandotte Industries manufactures a series of custom castle nuts for the automotive industry. These castle nuts were constructed from carbon steel and were intended for use in a vehicle axle application. Based off a customer supplied print, we built these nuts to measure precisely ½ of an inch in height and 1.500 inches across flats. We also provided the castle nuts with a 125 RMS microfinish.
Meeting a total indicator reading and height tolerance of .005 of an inch, we employed our screw machine to blank each part, readying the nuts for additional operations. These additional operations included both slotting and heat-treatment, using quenching and tempering processes to provide the nuts with a RC 26-36 surface hardness. In addition, we also tapped all 1-20(2B) threads.
Wyandotte Industries performed a series of in-process testing and product inspections to ensure that the castle nuts met all of our client’s conditions for quality and design. Once we were assured that the parts lived up to exact customer specifications, we then delivered the finished products to our client’s facility in South America.
Wyandotte Industries recently manufactured shear nuts used within a truck suspension application. Employing our Acme Gridley screw machine, which was able to maintain a (+/-) .01 of an inch precision tolerance with a 125 RMS microfinish, we blanked each part. After tapping the parts, we plated each part with Dacromet ® material for corrosion resistance. Finally, we completed all necessary assembly work, which included the installation of a pellet and tubing.
In addition to these processes, Wyandotte Industries employed tapping equipment to tap all 1 1/8-12(2B) threads. Constructed from durable carbon steel, the final products measured 1 5/8 inches wide across flats and 2 3/8 inches long. In order to ensure the shear nuts met all client specifications, we performed a series of in-process testing and product inspections, examining the shear plane break, torque, and proofload of each nut. Once assured that the nuts matched our customer-supplied print and met all performance requirements, we then delivered the finished units to our buyer’s facility in California.
Recently, a military subcontractor contracted Wyandotte Industries to custom manufacture a brass adjuster housing for use within an artillery application. Employing our advanced Mazak CNC turning center, which was able to uphold a tight, precision tolerance of (+/-) .003 of an inch, we machined all parts complete based off a customer supplied print. Each brass adjuster measured precisely 0.875 of an inch round and .500 of an inch high. The parts additionally weighed .024 of a pound each. These adjusters possessed M14 x 1.5(6g) threads and a 125 RMS microfinish. Performing a series of in-process inspections and thread gaging, Wyandotte Industries ensured that all brass adjusters met with our client’s precise product specifications before finally selling the completed parts to a distributor in the Midwest.
