Development process of stainless steel fasteners

Development process of stainless steel fasteners

Stainless steel is a new type of metal material invented in the early 19th century. The formation of chromium rich oxide film (passivation film) endows stainless steel with rust resistance and corrosion resistance. Therefore, after more than 100 years of development, stainless steel has been applied in various industries.
With the emergence of stainless steel materials, stainless steel fasteners have also begun to be produced. The beauty, durability, and strong corrosion resistance of stainless steel fasteners enable them to be used for fastening on more expensive machine components.
In the early 1980s, related technologies such as cold heading technology and wire drawing technology developed rapidly, providing practical specifications and acceptance standards for the production of stainless steel fasteners. During this period, the application of cold and warm heading processes in developed countries such as Japan, Germany, the United States, Italy, and France led to the rapid development of stainless steel fasteners.
China’s stainless steel fasteners have closely followed the pace of developed countries and regions, and began to introduce production equipment and technology for stainless steel fasteners. To this day, China has become the country with the largest production volume and capacity for stainless steel fasteners. The Shanghai International Fastener Exhibition aims to collaborate with upstream and downstream fastener enterprises, provide a platform for technical exchange for numerous fastener enterprises, and promote the comprehensive and multi-level development of the fastener industry.
Stainless steel fasteners, as a new star in the fastener industry, will shine brightly with the new information and processes brought by these exhibitors!
