The Hex effect

Hex-headed high tensile bolts and screws, together with hex drive socket head cap screws, are widely regarded as mainstays of industrial fastening.

And these are all stocked in depth by Challenge Europe as part of its supply partnership philosophy.

Standard high tensile formats include non-flange hex head and flanged designs, along with standard socket cap head, socket button head and socket countersunk designs. Material grades available include 8.8, 10.9, 12.9 and stainless steel to suit the strength and environmental performance characteristics envisaged for the application. Sizes are typically in the range M2 to M24, with some specifications going larger.

Supply partnership means that Challenge Europe takes on the management of a customer supply chain, states the company, from design specification to lineside supply using lean manufacturing principles or other optimising and integrative manufacturing philosophy to suit customer methodology.
