Production System

Cold Heading Process
Part heads and shanks are formed by upsetting and extruding steel wire stock. The cold heading process provides parts that have higher strength,higher productivity, and no scrap, when compared with machining.
Thread Rolling and Washer Assembly
Part blanks are rolled between dies to form the threads. Washers can be assembled onto the part blank, prior to rolling, providing a part with a captive washer. Thread rolling provides parts that have higher strength, higher productivity, and no scrap, when compared with machining.
In House Heat Treatment
Parts can be either through hardened or carburized (case hardened) to achieve the required strength and hardness.
Surface Treatment/Plating
TAF has a strong network of surface treatment, plating, and adhesive/thread coating subcontractors. We provide our customers with high quality finishes to meet the performance and appearance needs of their parts.
