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

How We Set Ourselves Apart in CNC Assemblies

Quality CNC parts are challenging to find, but not with Amerascrew. The average corporate company in the CNC industry (or any industry) is after one thing and one thing only -- money --, and that's where they get it wrong. To run a quality business, you must establish great founding principles and values that guide the company and its structure. However, that's not the case with most businesses in our industry; this is where outsourcing plays an unfortunate role. Businesses that favor cheap labor over quality labor will typically look for work overseas to cut costs. Although this may be cost-effective in the short term, this can create many problems. For the consumer, this creates a lack of trust because once this happens, the quality of the product often decreases, and the price of the product stays the same. Luckily, Amerascrew is different. Amerascrew values quality, made in the USA parts that will last as long as needed. We don't cut corners, just metal. We wo
