Custom fastener applications are commonplace in a wide range of industries and manufacturing situations. Custom – or “made-to-print” – fasteners are often preferred by manufacturers to accommodate special conditions, applications, and security or safety measures for their products. So while there are thousands of different mass-produced fasteners and fastener systems for every kind of consumer, commercial, and industrial product, often unique product designs require made-to-print fasteners manufactured from standard or exotic materials.
At Electronic Fasteners, we have the expertise, experience, and resources to handle virtually any custom fastener request through our reliable, ISO-qualified, domestic and international suppliers. We can deliver a wide variety of custom components for a range of commercial, industrial, and military applications.
Our made-to-print capabilities include:
- Custom designed and manufactured screws, nuts, bolts and other fasteners
- Metal stamping
- Powder coating
- Plastic and rubber fastener molding
- Custom manufacturing using standard and exotic materials
In addition to handling every aspect of your made-to-print fastener order, we also offer a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program to ensure that you have a ready supply of products in stock. If you’re not familiar with VMI, it’s a parts stocking strategy in which the supplier determines when to replenish items and how much to replenish based on customer usage history. This can be especially useful for made-to-print fastener applications because it might be more difficult to replace custom-made fasteners quickly, compared to standard, readily-available components.
Our highly-experienced team is ready to provide solutions for your made-to-print fastener requirements quickly and cost-efficiently. Whether it’s customizing existing fasteners or fastener systems or creating a proprietary fastener for your specialized needs, our skilled design engineers will help develop an appropriate fastener and manufacture it. From nuts and bolts to screws, hinges, and latches — whatever your made-to-print solution is, we’ll produce it and keep it in inventory for you, ready for delivery when you need it.
