Challenge Europe address the application for threaded fasteners
10 February 2017
Each manufacturing industry has its own requirements, but all use threaded fasteners – nuts, bolts, screws and washers. Challenge Europe addresses these varying applications with the experience and technical expertise which can save manufacturers’ time, money and concerns about quality. Industries such as electronics, medical, agricultural, general machinery, instrumentation, marine, and building, all benefit from their careful consideration of the presented specification and supply of quality fasteners.
Each application is different of course as M.D. Kevin Moorcroft explains: “In many applications the requirement is fairly straightforward and can often be met by a standard item, however it is also quite common to require a higher spec material or different length, different head form, unusual thread length or non-standard finish. That is where we come in to help identify what is needed and to supply at a competitive price. Where something more custom is needed then we can deal with that too; as we can with a range of fastener associated products or, where a threaded system is not suitable, then we can provide a riveting solution”.
Standard products include socket shoulder screws, machine screws, self-drilling screws and hex-headed high tensile bolts. Smaller sizes of many fasteners particularly suit the electronics industry and a range of plastic plugs protect products in transit from ingress of foreign bodies. Korrex plastic nut caps are ideal for outdoor protection.
