The Process



Meet with our team of application, mechanical and electrical engineers to discuss your biggest fastening challenges. Through discussion and discovery, we’ll begin to identify pain points and get a complete picture of your goals and project requirements.



After evaluating performance goals, assembly structure and alternative solutions, we’ll design a new and innovative fastening solution to bring greater efficiency to your application.



We’ll collaborate directly with you to take a closer look into your application and evaluate the best solutions to improving performance and reducing total installed cost over the life of your program.



Our in-house technical centers offer a full range of services, such as prototype development to full testing capabilities which are a vital part of the Innovations Lab. From FEA analysis to corrosion and plating testing, our depth of testing services ensure you consistently get the results you need.
