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.
