Creating Solutions To Match Your Processes.
The selection of fasteners for a design may be seen as a simple task. It is a difficult task, requiring careful consideration of temperature, corrosion, vibration, fatigue, initial preload, and many other factors.
Fastbolt has a comprehensive offering of value-added engineering services to help reduce in-placement costs:
- Joint design and review
- Product standardization and consolidation
- Product teardowns
- Automation assistance
- Custom engineering through our supply chain partners
Assembly in manufacturing consists of fastening various components into a functioning unit or a higher level subassembly. A fastener mechanically joins or affixes two or more objects together. There are thousands of types of fasteners, so much is dependent on the needs of the application.
Our active engagement with any production part approval process serves as a tool for Fastbolt to ensure the product meets the customer’s requirements and the related process can consistently produce the conforming product.
In addition, over a period of time, it becomes challenging to realize savings on a part or even a family of parts while maintaining or even improving quality. When looking to drive cost savings on fasteners, it is critical to consider the part cost and the components of total in-placement costs.
Total in-placement costs include logistics, procurement, material flow, design, joint preparation, scrap or rework, quality/inspection, and assembly. A significant time and labor expense are consumed just getting material to the point of assembly and the fastener put to work.
At Fastbolt, we recognize the importance of improving productivity and cost-benefit while always addressing a quality solution. Fastbolt provides support during the early design stages of product design or re-design, and our quality department offers modern measuring and testing, ensuring a quality product.
