Wyandotte Industries was requested to produce a custom manufactured carbon steel nylon insert locknut that would be used for a hydraulic cylinder application. Employing our Acme Gridley screw machining technology, which was able to meet tolerances as low as (±) .015 of an inch, we were able to fabricate these locknuts based off a customer supplied print to measure precisely 1-3/4 inches in overall height and 2-3/8 inches across flats or OD.
Wyandotte Industries tapped all 1 ½-12(3B) threads for these locknuts. We also added all nylon inserts. Each nut possessed a 125 microfinish. To ensure that the locknuts met client specifications, we performed a series of in-process inspections and examined the thread fit, proofload, and prevailing torque of each nut. Once we were assured that these custom manufactured nuts satisfied all of our client’s unique product requirements, we delivered our customer’s hydraulic cylinder nuts to their facility in the midwest.
