nuclear eyebolt special fastenersA recent project was to manufacture several specialised eyebolts, required for a lifting cradle used in nuclear applications.

A recent project was to manufacture several specialised eyebolts, required for a lifting cradle used in nuclear applications.
Forged blanks were produced using 46mm diameter EN14 material, then normalised. Ultrasonic and Ultimate Tensile Testing was conducted on the forged blanks before machining.

The Eyebolts were then turned, milled and threaded with a specialised trapezoidal thread (TR40x7). Plug gauges were produced, using the mating component supplied, and each eyebolt throughly checked for compliance.

A product code was also chemically etched onto each eyebolt.

A complete Quality plan was provided with the components, a strict requirement, ensuring full tractability for every stage of production.
