Innovative rivet bush joins the Hank family

TR Fastenings reckons it is set to capture new European business with the launch of its latest innovation, the Euro Rivet Bush.

Designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, the new product will be a part of the Hank family of fasteners and will offer an alternative to the Kerb-Konus and PSM rivet bush ranges.

The Euro Rivet Bush is produced using multi-spindle machines, offering high performance products, at competitive prices. Designed to offer a permanent female thread in sheet steel that is too thin to be tapped by conventional methods, the bush is easily installed and extensive in-house testing using the very best engineering equipment shows the product out performs similar products offered by TR's competitors.

Steve Wallis from TR Fastenings commented: "Prior to the launch of the Euro Rivet Bush, TR [was] manufacturing 3 million parts per month. With the introduction of this new item, production is set to soar as we win new business from the Continent. We are confident that with the combination of a high quality product coupled with a competitive pricing structure customers will be switching to the Euro Rivet Bush."

The product is available for immediate shipment in sizes M3-M8 in self-finish or plated steel and product is offered in a number of different spigot lengths to suit specific applications. Due to the flexibility of the UK manufacturing plant, TR also offers reduced lead times on any non-standard diameters or spigot lengths.

TR Fastenings has been manufacturing genuine Hank rivet bushes for 30 years and now claims market leadership in the segment.
