What is Automatic Screw Machining?
Automatic screw machining is a process by which precision parts of varying sizes are manufactured from a metalworking lathe, either single or multi-spindle. Automatic screw machined parts are turned from metal bar stock or plastic. The bar stock is held firmly in a moving headstock and turned against a specific cutting instrument, forming the part. The term “screw machine” is confusing since a screw machine doesn’t actually produce most of your common screws.
Since 1948, Abbott Interfast has been a manufacturer and supplier of both domestic and import high precision automatic screw machining products. As a leading screw machine manufacturer, we provide a wide variety of high quality, low-cost screw machined products to customers across the globe. Our 100,000 sq. ft. facility and overseas factories are equipped with both single and multi-spindle screw machines such as Acme, New Britain, Brown & Sharpe, and Davenport. We have the capacity for prototyping as well as low and high volume production runs.
