Designing with Fastening in Mind
Problems derived by non-optimized assembly methods can jeopardize what would otherwise be a successful new product development. Inefficiency, underproduction, new component availability, downtime, and no-build conditions all threaten revenue and profits. Far too often, the manufacturer will focus on the functional aspects of its product. As long as the product does what it is supposed to do, looks like it is supposed to look, and fits in a basic package, the design is deemed successful. Unfortunately, successful validation of new products manufactured via prototype or low volume production tooling can give the manufacturer a false sense of security. Collaboration with a fastener company can be valuable at any stage in the manufacturing cycle. However, consultation with the right fastener specialist early in the design cycle provides the best opportunity to optimize the assembly process. Unforeseen assembly issues can be avoided and overall cost can be reduced. The primary purpose of this paper is to define the benefits of collaboration with a customer focused fastener supplier.
