Manufacturer and supplier of industrial components, TR Fastenings, has launched a new website it says is the “ultimate go-to resource” for engineers, designers and buyers.
The company says the website has improved navigation and functionality, so users can easily source from its online catalogue of over 40,000 products.
These include TR’s own branded range of fasteners, including Hank self-clinch fasteners and rivet bushes, self-locking nuts, inserts and screws for plastic, blind rivets and rivet nuts, plastic fasteners and cable management products to screws, nuts, washers and specially manufactured parts.
With an annual output of over 50 billion components, TR supplies to a wide range of industries, from automotive, electronics, telecoms and domestic appliances to marine, audio, petrochemical and general industrial.
For the new-look website, TR says it has combined modern design with a powerful search tool. Users can search for the product or product range required using any number of search terms and choose from a range of items available and related technical information.
Once the product and size needed has been selected, users can view, send or download a dynamically generated 2D drawing for the part that includes all related dimensional data, download the related 3D model in a number of formats and save the part to the enquiry basket.
In addition, the website carries an extensive ‘Engineering Knowledge Base’, which includes a comprehensive range of 2D/3D fastener models available to download; step-by-step animated installation guides; tooling requirements and related technical information; detailed performance data; material and finish specifications; and fastener standards and comparison tables.
TR Fastenings says that as a full service provider, core to the new website is sections covering the key industries it supplies and the services and technical support available to its customers, from engineering and design through to specification, manufacturing, quality and logistics.
Additionally, TR Fastenings says the website will be continually updated over the course of 2016 with new products and features, including a customer portal and specialist technical articles. It is also planned to make the site available in a number of languages.
