In addition to its large stockholding of standard products, Owlett-Jaton is also able to supply a wide range of special fasteners to customers’ specifications – including parts to drawing, in all material grades, head styles, and thread forms.
Owlett-Jaton’s specials team has many decades of experience in supplying special fasteners, covering a wide variety of applications. Working closely with customers, the team provides a fully bespoke service, ensuring that all specifications are met. The team can also provide the technical and documentary backup required to be a reliable partner in this important area of fastener supply.
The process includes managing the manufacturing process, through to fastener testing and providing the supporting certification. Short lead times and quick turnaround for urgent jobs are also part of the service, helping to reduce costs and keep downtime to a minimum.
To support the supply of special fasteners, Owlett-Jaton also provides a wide range of secondary processes, including all plating finishes and special coatings, along with thread patching and machining.
Once complete, the product is re-packaged in-house, complete with data on the label containing product code and description, quantity, barcode and batch reference. The majority of such orders are delivered complete when ready. Larger volume orders can be held at Owlett-Jaton’s warehouse facility and delivered as and when required by the customer on a ‘call off’ basis.
Special fasteners often end up in demanding applications, resulting in them potentially requiring additional certification. Owlett-Jaton can supply this additional certification, including Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) and Initial Sample Inspection Reports (ISIR) documentation. Owlett-Jaton can also supply Country of Origin and full batch traceability. This is supported by its ISO 9001:2015 quality systems and ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system.
“This level of service all adds up to convenience, efficiency, and peace of mind for the customer, ensuring that their requirements are met right – first time,” states Owlett-Jaton.
