Covid Response: Essential Critical Infrastructure Business

To start with, these are the top items you should keep in mind when ordering bolts from Black Anvil Construction Suplies.

Quantity, Dimensions, Finish, Grade, Configuration, Thread Length, Accessories such as Nuts and Washers, and Requirements.

Quantity
There are fixed costs to any production fasteners and will include set up (equipment) fees and charges for testing. Anytime you run across custom manufactured pieces, there will be a significant impact on the price of each part. Keep in mind, the larger the part run, the more time it takes to manufacture each piece.

Dimensions
Length & diameter for each fastener have an effect on the cost of each bolt. Material used to manufacture bolts is bought on a per pound basis, the more bolt weighs, the more expensive it is.

Finish
There are many finishes your bolt can come in including zinc plated. Any time you are add a coating to your bolt the production time lengthen and the cost will go up.

Event name: FIRST® in Michigan State Competition Event
Date: Wednesday, 4/10/2019 to Saturday, 4/13/2019

Event description: First Robotics Competition, or FRC, is a robotics competition for high school students that combines science and technology with the excitement of competing. FIRST in Michigan organizes the competition into 3 tiers; Districts, State Championship, and the World Championship. Lightning Robotics attended the Michigan State Competition, hosted in Saginaw, MI. In total, 160 FIRST teams from Michigan attended this event to compete with their robots. Teams spent six weeks building and testing their robots following the release of this year’s game, FIRST® DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE, from FIRST on January 5th. During DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE, two alliances of three teams each face off to score the most points in a two and a half minute match. Points are earned by securing hatch panels and loading cargo on to rockets and cargo ships. Teams earn end of match bonuses by climbing their robots onto different platforms of the habitat. Team 862 will next compete from April 24th - 26th at the World Championship in Detroit.

There was a time when most of the powerful tools we use today were crude and required great effort to get things done. Looking back in history at those tools we see they started with the challenge of solving some of their problems using materials that were available at that moment. When a task is to be accomplished, the people thought about how best it can be handled and how a device they thought could accomplish the task would be made. That was the beginning of the invention of most of the tools we use today. The invention has grown from one generation to the other. This is how modern tools evolved.
