ABOUT Screw Machine Shops
Technology: Screw Machining Services are metal turning services that rely on automated turning methods for producing large quantitites of small parts. In its typical incarnation, a screw machine feeds stock into single or multiple spindles on which are performed a sequential series of machining operations such as boring, threading, and parting. Traditional screw machines feed the stock through a rotating spindle while variations hold the work stationary and approach it with rotating tools.Quicker manufacturing cycles compared with single spindle machinesEliminates awkward handling of small itemsHigh quality surface finishes are typicalMany service providers will house inventory to justify larger lot runs
Advantages: Screw machining services can offer high speed, high accuracy manufacture of small cylindrical parts.
Limitations of Screw Machining ServicesNot suited to low volume runsPart size has upper limits on diameter and volume
Applications: Screw machining services are used to make a variety of high production volume small and cylindrical pieces.Bone screwsConnectorsFastenersNeedle valves
