Clips and Fasteners are most commonly categorized as flat or sheet material that is formed into simple or complicated shapes. Most often, Clips and Fasteners are manufactured using both low and high carbon steels, depending on the application. In some applications, high carbon spring steels are utilized where a spring force is required that cannot be obtained with normal spring forces. When high carbon spring steels are used for manufacturing, it is a standard requirement that the product is heat treated and quenched to a hardness level that allows the product to flex without deforming. Heat treating and oil quenching are commonly used for the hardening process, but an Austemper heat treating process is typically the best practice for eliminating heat treat deformation.

Steels most commonly used in our process for manufacturing Clips and Fasteners are either low carbon, cold rolled steel (without heat treatment), and high carbon spring steels ranging from Grade 1050 to 1095, along with Stainless Steels and precious metals such as Brass, Phosphor Bronze, and Beryllium Copper. Clips and Fasteners that we manufacture typically range in material thickness of .010″ up to .080″, with many of our prototype and short run orders ranging from these sizes. We also have the capability of manufacturing designs in a wide range of shapes and sizes. We can supply Clips and Fasteners with a variety of special finishes or coatings to your specification along with various heat treating requirements.
