Cold Formed Miniature Fasteners

Anderson Manufacturing has produced miniature fasteners and parts for electrical contacts since our business began nearly 40 years ago. We continue today as an experienced supplier of cold formed miniatures that meet the precision fastening needs of automotive, electronic, medical and other applications.

We manufacture miniature fasteners such as screws, bolts, contacts and studs (including clinch studs) using materials ranging from aluminum, brass, copper and stainless steel, to low carbon steel and others. We can form fasteners with diameters as small as 0.019", and with diameter and length tolerances of ±0.001" and ±0.002", respectively.

For standard or custom miniature fasteners, contact us or request a quote.
