This latest batch of eye bolt shafts are forged in EN16 (605M36) material before being normalised and shotblast. The forged blanks are then machined and threaded, finished with chemical black before being assembled with one nut and shipped to the customer. The forging is machined on one of our 3 axis CNC machine centres and CNC lathes.

These components are forged in batches of between 200 to 1000 at a time. If the customer prefers, we can forge and machine parts in higher quantities to keep the forging cost per item low, then hold stock and ship according to the customer’s demand.
