chamfering and marking of stud boltsChoice Fastener is a longtime customer of MSI's that manufactures stud bolts in Spring, Texas, north of Houston. Choice Fastener recently purchased an additional C3A ChamferMate® and MarkMate® machine to chamfer stud bolts for their oil and gas customers.

"We use a lot of 4140 heat treated B7 material to make stud bolts. We rely on the C3A ChamferMate® to give to give us the dependability and consistent quality our customers need.  We also add a direct part mark for our manufacturing ID and material grade on each stud bolt using an MSI MarkMate®" says Charles Moran, President of Choice Fasteners.

"We also mark a heat code on each bolt as an in house traceability mark to match a bolt to a manufacturing batch.  The combination of the C3A ChamferMate® and the MarkMate® allows us to automate our processes and saves us a ton of time along with giving us the best stud bolts possible" continues Mr. Moran.

"MSI provides us with excellent service.  They are easy to work with and will do what it takes to get us what we need to help our customers. We really appreciate Wayne and the people at MSI" states Mr. Moran.
