Distributor's Link Magazine Fall Issue 2014


82 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Cardinal Fastener a leading manufacturer of large diameter hot forged fasteners, hosted a plant tour on July 29, for fastener manufacturing personnel and distributors attending the Fastener Training Institute’s “Fastener Training Week.” Attendees were welcomed by Bill Boak, President of Cardinal Fastener, who provided a brief history of this US-based ISO 9001:2008 certified company that specializes in high strength, hot forged fasteners, including hex and square head bolts, heavy hex structural bolts, socket head and hex head cap screws, 12 point, hex flange bolts, studs, and specialty parts ranging from 1/2” to 3” dia. (M16 to M72 metric). During a factory tour of Cardinal’s 90,000 square foot plant, the group learned how Cardinal offers same-day or next day shipping of pre-forged blanks with 3-5 day turnaround for custom parts and fasteners. Highlights of the tour included witnessing Cardinal’s large inventory of raw material and preforged blanks, a newly rebuilt 600-ton Ajax hot forging upsetter, Short-Lead-Time manufacturing cells, five new HAAS® CNC lathes, and Cardinal’s Quality department. Jeannine Christensen, Director of Education for the Fastener Training Institute, was so impressed that she invited Cardinal Fastener to host an upcoming “Fastener Training Week” tour later this fall.
