The important of self-drilling screws

The important of self-drilling screws
It was the need for speed combined with the realisation that by putting a cutting face on the end of a power driven screw it could cut its own hole and immediately generate a female thread, which led to the concept of self-drilling screws, and saving a considerable amount of time. In the case of self-drilling Tek type screws, with integral sealing washer, this time saving is increased, together with the added functional improvement of instantaneous sealing.

Fastener experts offer performance and production efficiency

Fastener experts offer performance and production efficiency
When it comes to designing a new project manufacturers will in many cases focus on the ‘high value’ components that embody their innovation as a business. However, innovation is not restricted by size, as the importance of specifying correct fasteners illustrates in a multitude of applications. Weight, cost, ease of installation and product standardisation are four key features to consider when specifying fasteners for application. Nonetheless, to gain equilibrium between these factors, manufacturers need to involve a business with expertise in fasteners.
