The delivery date of stainless steel non-standard screws is a pain point for many screw manufacturers. The customization of a non-standard screw is really time-consuming. From raw materials, to custom-made molds, screw production and other additional processes, the entire process takes a lot of time and manpower.

However, in terms of mold customization, different non-standard screws use different molds. This involves different materials and different processes of the mold. For each mold, we have a corresponding service life requirement. Some non-standard screws will wear out the mold, so we will ask the supplier to strengthen the process.

The most difficult thing is that there is no matching supplier in China. For the screw of one of our customers, the requirements for the mold are very high. The domestic mold process requirements cannot meet the requirements we want, so we can only choose to find a Taiwan supplier to open the mold. This takes a long time, and if it encounters mold repair, the entire delivery cycle will be longer. The mold development cycle can be as fast as one week, or as slow as 3-4 weeks. In addition, a series of processes such as raw materials, screw production, additional processes, etc., are required to go down to a production cycle of 1-2 months.
