Hardware Assembly

You can specify to have your parts assembled. For example you might want to specify a PEM insert for a metal enclosure or a hinge for a box.

To have your parts assembled:

  1. Locate a supplier for any required hardware, adhesives, etc. (e.g. mcmaster.com) and get a price.
  2. On your drawing use Comments To Machinist to specify your requirement. For example:
    • "Bolt hinge here (with arrow pointing to holes) mcmaster.com #123456, $5.00 for pack of 10 – $10 total, eMachineShop supplied"
    • "Insert PEM fastener – customer will supply via UPS"
    • Affix side panels with mcmaster adhesive #123.

eMachineShop can assemble:

  • Bolts
  • Nuts
  • Dowels
  • Inserts: PEM, Helicoil, Slimserts, Keenserts, etc. (first create the thru or blind hole using the normal CAD interface). Customer is responsible for choosing proper hole dimensions.
  • Hinges
  • Pins
  • Rivets
  • Joining parts with adhesive (e.g. an acrylic box)
  • etc.
