TR Fastenings has further grown its self-clinch range of fasteners for sheet metal products to meet growing requirements, in response to booming demand, the firm has said.
The global manufacturer and supplier of industrial fasteners said it had seen a whopping 40% increase in sales of self-clinch fasteners for sheet metal products over the last five years.
That growth has been achieved largely through increasing its product portfolio, as well as adding new materials and sizes to existing ranges. TR Fastenings has actively promoted these products via its distributor network throughout Europe.
TR’s extensive self-clinch range includes a variety of studs, nuts, stand-offs and panel fasteners and now includes the latest additions in the self-clinch products; the TR-SO Clear-hole, un-threaded standoff, that can be used for spacing and stacking; the TR-PF11 Panel Fastener, available in different screw lengths and a retainer which offers positive-stop during installation; TR-TFH self-clinching studs for applications in sheets as thin as 0.51mm; and TR-TSO self-clinching standoffs for sheets as thin as 0.63mm.
TR’s product ranges are accessible via an online catalogue of more than 45,000 products.
The company’s recently relaunched website also provides an extensive Engineering Knowledge Base. This includes a comprehensive range of 2D/3D fastener models available to download, step-by-step animated installation guides, tooling requirements and related technical information, detailed performance data, material and finish specifications, and fastener standards and comparison tables. With more than 20,000 product configurations available in the online CAD library, engineers can specify the exact size of the fastener they require, then download the correctly sized model in any one of 27 different 2D and 3D formats.
Steve Wallis, TR Fastenings, Product Sales Development Manager said: “Since 2011 we have invested heavily in our self-clinch range as we continue to meet the demands of our ever increasing customer base. The products are used in a number of different industry sectors and a variety of applications. With such an extensive range of products and services now available we are confident that TR can meet and exceed the expectations of our diverse end-user and distributor network.”
