The innovative engineering of fasteners is the heart of our DNA

Facil engineers support the customer’s product development and provide best-in-class fastening solutions. We call this Fasteneering. As single point of contact, the Facil engineering team optimizes fastening solutions − from concept through serial production − in the areas of design, total-cost, assembly-performance, and complexity.

We realize total cost-savings by reducing:

  • development time
  • assembly time
  • the number of different parts
  • weight
  • tooling cost
  • complexity

In addition to our own expertise in Bill of Material development and optimization, Facil enjoys a strategic alliance with 2 world-class players in the fastener manufacturing world: KAMAX, specialist in the development and production of special cold-formed parts and bolts, and A. RAYMOND, specialist in the development and production of engineered metal and plastic fasteners.

As a service provider, we are unique in having this access to the world’s most complete expertise in fastener applications and technologies.

Added-value engineering services for both new and running projects

We offer our complete engineering services for both new and running projects and through both resident and remote engineering:

New projects

As your partner right from the start, Facil’s engineering team fully complements your own in-house engineering − ensuring the quality, efficiency and overall performance of the fasteners. Starting from your requirements or functional specifications, we develop the optimal BOM to maximize cost-effectiveness and quality.

We provide customer on-site support for R&D, creation of customer drawings, release and production phase, and engineering administration for the project.

Running projects

To identify opportunities for increasing the cost-effectiveness of existing processes and products, we offer ongoing product development and continuous improvement by performing line walks, standardization analysis, application engineering and product tear-downs.
