Do you need an engineered fastener or component but can’t find an off-the-shelf solution? Or, do you have an idea for a new fastener, but don’t have the expertise or resources to design and manufacture it yourself? Perhaps JET PRESS can help …
JET PRESS can offer a complete design, engineering and manufacturing service. We help companies to translate concepts and ideas into volume production parts. We can offer advanced design and 3-D modelling capabilities. These services can be used to enhance and improve your existing component design, or to come up with a completely new fastener concept. When our engineers get involved at the design stage of projects, we can help to lower costs and to reduce lead times dramatically.
Specialist Fasteners in Stainless Steel
One of the most frequent requests that we receive at JET PRESS is for help in designing fasteners in stainless steel. For many of our clients, stainless steel is the material of choice due to its corrosion resistance. Similarly, the metal’s high resistance to both high and low temperatures means that parts made in stainless steel can be used in numerous applications across all types of industries. Some stainless steels can maintain excellent strength at high temperatures. Other stainless steels can keep high mechanical properties at cryogenic temperatures.
The sheer strength of stainless steel makes it a popular choice for parts destined for use in the construction and building industries. The material is also visually appealing. In applications where aesthetic appeal is important, stainless steel components may be used. Certainly, a polished stainless steel part can be very pleasing to the eye.
JET PRESS Fasteners in Stainless Steel
“Some of the most popular JET PRESS fasteners can be produced in stainless steel. Bonding Fasteners are often used in marine applications. The parts can be produced in both 304 and 316 stainless steel. Other parts, such as press studs are also a popular choice in stainless steel and can be produced to customer requirements.
Spring Steel Fasteners in Stainless Steel
“Our popular range of Edge Clips is one that is often asked for in stainless steel. Although we can produce most of these types of fasteners in stainless steel, this type of clip will have different “spring” qualities when produced in stainless steel instead of mild steel.
Often, when it comes to spring clips, corrosion resistance is the main reason for choosing stainless steel. In these instances, we often recommend that the customer take the part in a mild steel with a finish that has a very high corrosion resistance. This makes it easier to maintain the working attributes of the original spring steel clip. We can offer lots of special finishes that will achieve a corrosion resistance, based on a salt spray rating, of many hundreds of hours.
