A big job for a small part
When you buy cheap fasteners, you risk manufacturing a defective product. It doesn’t matter how great your product is if the fasteners used to hold it together aren’t right for your application. If your fastener is just a fraction of a millimeter out from your original specification, you may well be in trouble.
You’ll also find cheap screws a lot more difficult to use. They’ll be more likely to break during installation, which will cause frustration, increase your operational costs and risk injury to your workforce. Not to mention you’ll have to replace those broken fasteners before your products even get out the door, which means you’ll be buying the same fastener twice.
