Milling, Machining & Molding – Custom Dimensions to Print

From simple bolts and screws to complex fastening assemblies, the team at Empire can provide you with custom fasteners in specialized dimensions. Here's how the process works:
  • We review your print or drawing and recommend any improvements to decrease cost, improve fabrication efficiencies, and find the best-matched source.
  • We work with quality manufacturers to deliver custom-milled, machined, and molded fasteners based on your design specifications.
  • After your custom fastener arrives, we perform a quality inspection in our in-house Dimensional Quality Assurance Laboratory to ensure it matches every element of your specifications.

Custom Plating & Coatings

Plating and coatings are used to help protect fasteners from corrosion, or to change their appearance for cosmetic purposes. Our in-house mechanical engineer and technical staff work with you to match the appropriate plating and coating to your project's requirements. Examples of common plating and coating options include:
  • Zinc plating
  • Galvanizing
  • Black oxide
  • Phosphate coating
  • Black anodizing
  • Brass plating
  • Nickel plating
  • Specialized chromates
  • Chromate conversion coatings

Locking Elements

Locking elements are used for fastener applications where exposure to vibration and other movements can cause threaded fastener assemblies to loosen or be damaged. Different locking methods provide a frictional connection between internal and external threaded assemblies. These methods vary in design based on specific applications.

Fastener & Component Materials

There are many materials to consider when designing your custom fasteners, including temperature tolerance, conductivity requirements, magnetic properties, corrosion resistance, tensile strength, cost, and more. Our technical team works with you to determine the best materials for your industry and application. Some examples of common materials are:
  • Brass
  • Steel
  • 18-8 Stainless Steel
  • 316 Stainless Steel
  • 410 Stainless Steel
  • Copper
  • Nickel-silver
  • Aluminum
  • Titanium
