Machining technology: screws for every purpose

Besides cold and hot forming, machining technology is the most important type of production for screws. Machining production represents the classic form of manufacturing screws, bolts and other composite elements. As an established specialist company, alstertaler GmbH offers the metal-cutting forming of screws as well as other turned parts – individually and at favourable conditions.

How does the machining technology for screws work?

For the machining of screws and other fasteners, a blank in wire-form is shaped by turning or milling using CNC machining. Depending on the demands on the final product, production can be time-consuming. Compared to cold or hot forming, a greater loss of material due to metal removal occurs.

As the machining process affects the metal's fibre orientation, the final product is usually less robust than products made by using other forming processes. This characteristic may be of less importance when manufacturing special screws in order to achieve a highly specific desired product. We are happy to talk you through the advantages and disadvantages of the machining technology for screws.

The machining of screws is not an isolated production area. Even in cold and hot forming, final machining processes are implemented, for example for rolling or cutting threads.

What are the alternatives to machining technology for screws?

alstertaler is a versatile partner who offers multiple ways of production. When using hot or cold forming, you benefit from the stability of the finished screws – special requests can also be implemented effortlessly and without high costs.

When choosing the right production process, the required quantity and the expected quality including dimensional tolerances are the determining factors. Please feel free to contact our highly skilled experts, who will inform you about the advantages of the individual processes. This is especially interesting for long-established companies that traditionally rely on the machining of their screws and are looking for price-conscious alternatives.
