We take performance testing very seriously and are committed to maintaining the highest level of quality on every product we offer. Starting with our supply chain partners and then in our own performance lab, each lot goes through a multi-level inspection process. Our relentless pursuit of quality improvement ensures that every part performs as designed in your customer’s application. For us it’s all about the details and your complete satisfaction.
Each case-hardened lot is performance tested according to the required ASME specifications:
We validate that the screw's material and surface hardness will make its own mating thread without excess torque or thread deformation.
We ensure that the material hardness will meet or exceed minimum strength requirements.
We confirm the screw's toughness and strength to maintain the flexibility needed to accommodate any seating surface variations.
A 24-hour test where samples from every case-hardened electroplated lot are under continuous torque to assure no evidence of failure. The retained samples and test plates are available for a minimum of three years.
Beacon’s Expertise is in Quality
In addition, we can provide complete documentation traceable to our supplier's material, heat treatment, and plating process. All performance testing results, inspection reports and certifications for material and plating are available upon request at no additional cost.
We will save you time and money by eliminating the need for duplicate inspections when you partner with us for all your high-performance fasteners!
