The Benefits of Internal Assembling

 

  



    It is no secret that many manufacturers have been taking their work overseas because it is cheaper in some cases and they can mass produce what they need to meet their market needs daily. This accounts for a large part of businesses; however, we are starting to see that manufacturing operations can be more cost effective and competitive if they stay in the United States. In this article, we will go over some of the benefits of internal assembly and show you why it may be better for you to keep your manufacturing business right at home.

    Companies that have successfully located manufacturing and assembly activity in the U.S. are using foreign trade zones to help improve supply-chain efficiency, reduce costs, and stay compliant with Customs and Border protection. Because FTZ’s are outside of the Customs Territory, the operator may choose to pay the duty rate on the finished product or the part, whatever is cheaper. You can be granted “direct delivery” and “weekly entry” that will substantially reduce your cost of importation. These FTZ’s were created to help businesses in the U.S. compete with foreign manufacturers and it works.

    If you keep your business in the U.S., you can have more efficient production lines. There are many companies throughout the world that will use surplus employees because they do not want to install the correct equipment that may reduce staffing demands. You should investigate what could be done with a better-engineered assembly and additional automation in the U.S. and make your decision from there.

    Lastly, what we will mention here is that when you do your business in the U.S. it is a lot easier to make sure that the material you are using and the products you are selling are quality. There can be a lot of mishaps in assembly when you are not there to monitor the waste and the quality control of your product and this could cost you not only money, but your customers trust as well. That is why at Amerascrew we are proud to offer internal assembling right in Mansfield, Ohio. This provides cheaper production, faster turnaround, higher quality products, and we test the product every time to make sure it is as good as it can be.

Styles of Automatic Screw Machines

            When you hear the term "automatic screw machine" or the less formal saying of just "screw machine", you may be under the impression that they serve the same function as a screwdriver or drill. This is not the case. Automatic screw machines are essentially lathes used to machine parts for industry or sale. They are capable of threading material, although that is not their sole purpose.      A screw machine is essentially a lathe which rotates a piece of material (i.e., wood, clay, metal) on an axis to perform various operations such as cutting sanding, knurling, drilling deformation, facing or turning. At Amerascrew , our engineers analyze your needs closely to give you the most cost-effective method for your parts.     Automatic screw machines fall into two easily recognizable categories -- Swiss and Turret -- and while they function differently, their output and benefits are more or less the same.      Swiss Screw Machines          Swiss screw machines

What is Stamping and What is it Used For?

               Many manufacturers offer some sort of metal stamping, but what is it and what would it be used for? Stamping is the process of placing any flat sheet metal of your choice in either blank or coil form into a stamping press where a tool and die surface forms the metal into your desired shape. A stamping die is a special tool that cuts and forms sheet metal into its desired shape and are typically made out of special forms of hardened steel called tool steel.  This system is used to make parts to many important products in industries such as aerospace, telecommunications, and agricultural sectors.            One of the biggest advantages of pressing and stamping parts is that you will often be able to complete the fabrication process more quickly. Because the stamping and pressing process moves along very quickly, you are able to get your products within just a few minutes in most cases. Stamping can be used in many different industries based off the needs of the customer

The "O" Word: Let's Talk About Outsourcing

If you’re a customer of Amerascrew , you’ll know that we are proud to produce American-made parts. In fact, our website states, “Don’t go overseas when the quality your business needs is right in your own backyard!” So why do so many companies these days send jobs overseas to manufacture products in warehouses in places like China and India? Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of outsourcing. First, manufacturers can find much cheaper labor costs in countries where the living wage is much lower than that of the United States. Avoiding high operating expenses of course means that money is being saved. Second, outsourcing plays a big role in the globalization of a company, and may even create international business allies in developing countries where these jobs are being created. Another benefit of outsourcing is that when so-called “simple” jobs such as assembly are done overseas, the home company can redirect time and energy into the high-dollar administrative tasks or thos
