Course Details:

In this all-day class, fastener expert Laurence Claus takes participants into the fastener manufacturing world and explores why the often-under-appreciated components are complex engineering marvels.  

Participants will gain a basic understanding of the different methods of producing fasteners: cold heading, hot heading, and screw machining. Students will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each manufacturing method plus delve into many of the other steps, such as thread rolling, grinding, machining, heat treating and plating that the average fastener may undergo. 

Students will learn how each of these different processes, as well as raw material, and customer expectations drive what may appear to be a routine run-of-the-mill fastener into a value-added powerhouse of a component.  

Participants will recognize the cost drivers of value-added products, gain practical fastener knowledge and increase their professional value.
