The chemical composition of the raw material that is used to produce a fastener is all important. We are one of the few fastener companies who have an in house capability to undertake material analysis.

Our Spectromax metal analyser has recently been serviced and calibrated to a wide range of materials, including carbon, alloy and stainless steels.

We were delighted to be informed that the results were very consistent and accurate, with our analyser passing with flying colours!

Smith Bullough was featured in the May 2018 issue of Fastener & Fixing Magazine.

The article details recent expansion of the product range, which led to a redesign of the floor plan to accommodate new machinery. This has allowed us to streamline the entire manufacturing process.

Barcode tracking has also been implemented, which has seen an increase in efficiency.

It has been a busy 12 months for Smith Bullough, after considerable expansion to the manufacturing range in 2016 with the addition of several new pieces of machinery. New threading machines enable production from M2.5 up to M100 diameter, whilst additional CNC turning provides extra capacity for the 10.9, 12.9 and SAE8 ranges. A new programmable automatic saw was added, alongside extra capacity for secondary operations such as milling, drilling, grinding and slotting.

As a result of this expansion, the Company is now able to produce non-standard and special fasteners in most materials, including carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, non-ferrous and exotic materials. Special head shapes can be forged, with forging tooling being produced in-house.

Director Tim Garton visited the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), which is one of seven Advanced Manufacturing Research centres that the Government has set up.

Discussions took place which should keep Smith Bullough at the forefront of bolt manufacturing technology. http://www.smithbullough.com/blog/smith-bullough-at-the-advanced-forming-research-centre

John Hilton and Tim Garton represented Smith Bullough at the Torque Expo Fastener Exhibition at Silverstone on the 11th and 12th of October.
John and Tim were kept busy with visitors who represented a good cross-section of the British fastener distribution industry. Great interest was shown in our non-standard Metric range and the special bolting that is produced in our factory, alongside the new ranges of fasteners in stainless, non-ferrous and exotic materials made possible by our expansion in 2016.
Many great contacts were made and we look forward to Torque Expo 2017!
