We’re pleased to share our Part Accuracy metric improved in the month of June! As our customers are aware, we set high goals for our Distribution Performance. In May, our Part Accuracy was 99.79% and in June, we were able to raise it to 99.96%, beating our goal of 99.95%! Back in May, we identified the root cause of the issue, which allowed us to apply effective corrective action.
In applications where the working loads are exerted in line with the length of the bolt (called tensile loads), both a fully threaded and a partially threaded fastener are going to be able to support the same load. If the working forces exceed the strength of the fastener, both of these fasteners will fail in the threads at the same load.
