Several years ago, ARNOLD UMFORMTECHNIK developed its Flowform fastening solution and established it on the market to meet the needs of an increasing number of metal joining applications. Now the company is introducing the next step in its development.
If developers and manufacturers of fasteners wish to succeed, they must face the issue of vehicle electrification. And it is a topic that ARNOLD UMFORMTECHNIK from Forchtenberg-Ernsbach in south-west Germany has been concerned with for some years. The company began solid and comprehensive work on customers’ projects in this field back in 2016.
Thread-tapping screws are in frequent use, particularly in lightweight construction. To ensure process reliability during assembly and to create a reliable component, at the design stage of the fastening – besides the actual design of the screw – the surface coating system must also be precisely defined.
ZF TRW honours ARNOLD, based in Shenyang, China, with the “Excellent Supplier Quality Award 2018”. The award was presented at the Supplier Conference held in Shanghai on 23rd January 2019, by managers at ZF TRW, a China-based company belonging to ZF, the automotive supplier operating worldwide.
German company ARNOLD UMFORMTECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG, manufacturer of and development partner for innovative fastening systems and cold formed parts, and Swedish fastener supplier ESSVE intend to work more closely together in the future and are therefore concluding a sales cooperation agreement. The agreement will provide for improved support of customers in the Scandinavian countries and the Baltic. The partnership will also enable both companies to tap into new market potential.
In the trailer industry security and lightweight construction play an important role. Moreover, using the appropriate screws and processing technologies can make a contribution to the efficient construction and repair of semitrailers, while also honing costs.
The trend for replacing metals with increasingly higher performance and high-strength plastics continues, particularly in lightweight construction. Against this background, direct fastenings that are perfectly designed and matched to these high-performance plastics are gaining in importance.
Lower assembly costs, fewer part types, and the trend towards fitting pre-fabricated components: there are many reasons for using pre-assembled fastening systems. Depending on the application concerned manufacturers can use different materials, and make use of detachable or permanent captive fastening systems.
For 2017 we have no current press information for the moment
As a general rule, a combination of expertise represents better service for customers, and more straightforward processes for the company. A supplier of fasteners and a supplier of automation solutions point out the advantages.
