Whether it’s providing assistance with new or difficult applications or working on an expedited delivery, he is committed to helping his customers grow their business. “It is refreshing to be part of a company and team with the “Customer First” focus that Sems & Specials has. Throughout the entire process, we are committed to providing the best value and customer service in the fastener industry for our customers.”
Sems and Specials recently installed two new medium diameter multi-station parts formers to manufacture complex cold formed shapes which allows added value to the component. This equipment will be also be used to develop items that are currently produced on CNC equipment which allows for greater cost savings.
Our new 5 die progressive parts former will provide a product diameter range of .312 (M8) to .500 (M12) and a maximum length of 6”. We also added an additional (3) die progressive parts former having a product diameter range of .184 (5M) to .375 (M10) and a maximum length of 3”.
To enhance our quality environment to meet or exceed current PPM requirements, we have installed the most updated Inspection, Sorting and Packaging machine available to our industry. Our new dimac inspection machine has one eddy current station and two vision stations to measure the entire fastener at rates of 400 units per minute. Once the parts are inspected they will be placed in the final shipping container eliminating possible future contamination.
