Screw Machining of a Spanner Nut for the Defense Industry
Thuro Metal Products is a leader in the manufacture of Precision Machined Metal Component Parts for many industries including the military. Our experience in manufacturing products for military operations dates back to the founding of our company in 1971.
The Spanner Nut pictured is a Connector Component used in military communications. We manufacture the nut which measures 1.364” – 1.369” O.D. x 1.155” I.D. by 0.178” – 0.182” height from 360 half hard brass per the ASTM B16 standard using Automatic Screw Machines. Our in-house expertise and capability in tooling layout, design and production ensures burr-free parts without the need for secondary deburring. Each nut receives olive drab cadmium plating which provides a dull finish per military specs. We continually conduct dimensional and final inspection to ensure that our process remains capable of achieving the ±0.0015” tolerances called for in customer specifications. Because of the skill displayed by our employees in machining high volume parts (we maintain the capability to machine 1 million of these Spanner Nuts per year), as demand dictates, we continue to deliver error-free parts with no rejects, to our customer locations in Southwestern and Northeastern United States.
