POP Avdel® breakstem solutions are used in the trailer industry. These solutions provide a low cost, efficient means to assemble cabinets, table legs, etc. Our iForm® product line has provided drillscrew solutions for chassis and outer skin assembly. The use of drillscrews increases throughput for the manufacturer.
Acu®-Coat is an organic coating with high UV and wear resistance which comes in any pantone color. This allows manufacturers of fitness, hunting and outdoor sports equipment to design in fasteners that can be replaced repeatedly and still keep their aesthetic value. Increased through put has been realized by converting to our iForm thread formers for plastic and metals. Providing Torx®/Torx Plus® recessed products also increases aesthetics as well as reduces ream out issues during assembly and field adjustments.
STANLEY Engineered Fastening’s ability to cold form product out of various alloys and stainless steel materials (includes 401 and TrimRite stainless steel) provides cost savings over traditionally screw machined product. The DODGE® product line of brass insert and compression limiters also provides an efficient, robust solution to install threads in softer plastics for outboard engines. Our breakstem and self pierce riveting solutions are frequently used in the assembly of hulls and rails in the aluminum boat industry.
