Preassembled fastening ­systems for increased efficiency.

The unique CapTec® fastening system brings new momentum to your processes. Using CapTec® noticeably shortens assembly times straight away. Assembly costs decrease as a result which in turn means a reduction in the number of suppliers and consequently a reduction in small parts management.

The market challenges

  • Shortening the assembly time
  • Reducing the assembly costs
  • Reducing the number of suppliers
  • Reducing small parts management
  • Simplifying the assembly process
  • Lowering overall fastening costs
  • Selecting the screw design
  • Requirements for press-out force, assembly clearance and thread end projection length

Technical advantages

  • High degree of prefabrication
  • High assembly reliability
  • Integrated radial tolerance compensation
  • Joining in multi-material mix
  • Transport protection for thread
  • High load resistance in the fastening

Commercial advantages

  • Shortens the assembly time
  • Reduces number of parts and handling of parts
  • Efficient solutions according to requirements specification
  • A system from a single source
  • Prefabricated component assembly

CapTec® proves its value in actual use
CapTec® is used in many areas, primarily in the automotive industry but also in machine construction. The advantages of CapTec® are particularly evident in overhead screwing (e.g. when screwing in the oil sump) where the preassembled fastening system makes handling a lot easier.
When combined with a support sleeve, CapTec® is ideal for use where sleeves are integrated in plastic parts. CapTec® completely covers the load transfer and surface pressure requirements of the components. Here too, ARNOLD ­UMFORMTECHNIK offers the additional option of captive screw placement, thus creating significant added value for the customer.
