What is F593 Group 7 AH?

It’s an ASTM spec for type 630 (17-4PH) age hardened stainless steel.  It is a high strength (135-170ksi tensile) stainless steel that is very popular nowadays for applications that require something more than your average stainless steel.

Where do you source 904L fasteners?

We have a variety of suppliers that have proven to be reliable and accurate and depending on your specific needs we can find the right supplier for your application.  Use our “source this part” form to start the process.

Do you supply custom parts other than fasteners?

Yes, we can supply custom hardware to print.  Just send us your drawing and we will work with you to find the right vendor for your special requirements.

What is your turn around time?

“How soon do you need it?”  Actually, it depends on current production time; we look for the vendor who routinely has the best turnaround time to meet your deadline as well as the best quality products.

Do you have specials that are on the shelf?

We carry some, but when it comes to non-returnable specials most suppliers do not have them on the shelf.  However, there are some vendors who do have specials on the shelf.  Some manufacturers have blanks available which can be threaded to your requirements rather quickly.  If they are available, we can source it for you.

Can I use substitute a material versus what the specification requires?

We don’t recommend substituting materials that are less than what the specification calls out.  Some companies are willing to compromise the end product by making substitutions. However, we know that the specs for fasteners or custom machined parts are designed for specific applications and we do not believe that it is in your long term best interest to compromise on quality.

I’ve been referred to you for Titanium bolts, what makes sourcing Titanium bolts different?

Clients come to us for titanium bolts because of the traceability requirements and the laboratory testing which are needed as well as the paperwork that needs to accompany the bolts to assure the quality.
