ASCO Sintering Co has supplied both Residential and Commercial Latch Bolts to the Door Lock Hardware Industry for over 50 years.
These highly sophisticated and complex part designs embody the net shaped benefit provided by the Powder Metallurgy process and enable a 50% cost saving when compared to traditional manufacturing processes such as turning, milling or EDM.
Latch Bolts are manufactured complete from 70/30 or 80/20 brass, 300 or 400 Stainless Steel, or Copper-infiltrated steel.
These design solutions with 7 functional levels provide the extensive powder transfer and fill compensations necessary for even density distribution within all cross sections of the part and solidify Employee Owned ASCO Sintering Co. as one of the World’s leading experts in Conventional PM parts manufacturing.
Statistical Process Controls are applied throughout the Compacting and Sintering processes to achieve 6sigma Quality levels before the components are Zinc chromate or Electro Nickel plated per ASTM B633 Standards.
Used in Deadlocking Mortise or Spring Latch applications the designs are qualified through the BHMA Cycle Testing standards for functional strength, security, finish and corrosion requirements.
