Metal Usage and Terms
Below is further information on the metals used for our military parts.
This type of metal is a blend of carbon steel and an alloying element. Nickel, copper, silicon and aluminum are some of the possible elements in this combination. Unique properties are created using this method. Reasons for the merging include increase of strength and better resistance to corrosion. This is why industrial pipes are made of this blend. Many of our parts contain alloy steel, so you can rest assured you are receiving the best quality military parts and commercial fasteners.
A merging of carbon and iron, carbon steel is a metal alloy. Additional elements such as silicon are present, although these are so minimal that the steel property is not effected. Pipes and plates are common products constructed of carbon steel. Knives and skillets are also found with this material.
The aerospace industry sees frequent use of cadmium plating. Cadmium is a soft metal and acts as a "sacrificial coating." This is because a coating of this “soft” metal prevents corrosion and protects against water exposure, because it itself corrodes first. There are ways to enhance this corrosion protection to ensure even better protection.
The cup point refers to the type of shape on the tip of a set screw. This format is the most common. The cup point has been shown to have a high level of strength. Other points on the market include dog, cone, flat, domed and knurled cup. The knurled cup point combines the digging action of the cup point with the counter-clockwise locking knurls that have a ratchet-locking action. This subsequently helps resist loosening through even the most severe of vibrations, providing a sturdy and reliable screw.
Lot control is serves a wide variety of purposes and is an essential element for controlling inventory. This process ensures that any individual part can be traced back to its original group of parts. Different factors are used to determine the specific lot. This method helps to easily track down and distribute any parts under the inventory.
