Cold Forged/ Bar Turned

Newstar offer a variety of bespoke screw manufacturing procedures. Our two most common processes are listed below:

Cold Forged

A manufacturing technique using a cold working process that squeezes the material into a die before the parts assume the shape of the die. From this, an additional cold headed process forms the screw features such as the knurls or drive of the screw. The thread of the screw is then rolled on the screw shank.

Advantages of such a process are:

- Superior surface finish.

- Accuracy in dimensional control.

- Improved reproducibility and interchangeability.

Bar Turned

A manufacturing technique using rotating machinery which involves the cutting or removal of complex predesigned shapes and thread forms. This process is commonly manufactured using a CNC/ Single or Multi Spindle bar turning machines.

Advantages of such a process are:

- Easier to manufacturer medium to low volume quantities.

- Ideal for high precision and complex machined parts to DIN/ISO spec or customer drawings.

- Ideal for high end/ aesthetic fastener appearance.

Black Oxide

Black Oxide

The Black Oxide (also known as Blackening) service provided by Newstar Bespoke™ offers an alternative appearance to any stainless steel, alloy steel items. Such a treatment provides the following benefits:

  • An alternative to corrosion resistance such as electroplating.
  • Offers an aesthetic and decorative alternative for products.
  • Provides protection against corrosion.

Strip and Replating

Unable to source the fastening you require in the correct finish? Newstar Bespoke™ provides a Strip and Replate service allowing such issues to be resolved. Bespoke plating services include:

  • Zinc Plating
  • Zinc Nickel Plating
  • Zinc Black Oxide
  • Mechanical Plating
  • Top Coats.

Nylon Locking Patch

Having issues relating to vibration, loose screws, or loading at the assembly phase? A pre-applied Nylon Patch is a common preventative action. Newstar Bespoke™ offers such a solution thanks to its key links with specialists in the UK and further afield.

Whether you require a 180˚, 360˚, Horizontal or Vertical patch such a service provides the following advantages:

  • Standard patches are available in blue or red.
  • Re-useable.
  • Anti-vibrational.
  • Variable patch length and position.
  • Eliminates secondary locking features such as nuts, washers, etc.
  • Automatically locks in any position.
  • Resistant to chemicals including alcohol, petroleum, oil, kerosene, diesel fuel, and hydraulic acids.
Nylon Locking Patch


Having issues with screw retention? A popular option often used to eliminate such problems is to captivate the screw thread. A captive screw is manufactured/ altered by adapting a threaded section so a thread is reduced to its core/ a customer-specific diameter.

Benefits for such a procedure include:

- Securing a component in a fixed position.

- Reduced screw cost from damage or loss.

- Can be implemented using different styles or materials offering great variety.
