TR Fastenings to Partner Phillips Screw Company at Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing: Joining, Forming & Assembly Summit Europe
Phillips Screw Company is a leader in the design and engineering of proprietary high-performance drive systems for fastening applications in Aerospace, Automotive, DIY & Trade, Electronics, Industrial, Marine and Military markets.
Phillips will be partnering with TR Fastenings, a UK-based licensee of Phillips’ complete range of industrial drive systems and a multi-award winning global manufacturer and distributor of industrial fastenings and associated components, at the forthcoming Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing: Joining, Forming & Assembly Summit Europe being held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens UK on 18th – 19th November 2015.
Phillips and TR will be a Network Break Sponsor and Mike Mowins – President of Phillips - will be presenting a talk entitled:
- Design for Serviceability and Lightweight Fastening
- Why adhesives aren’t service friendly
- How to minimize threaded fastener weight while assuring dis-assembly
- Why robust and lightweight are not mutually exclusive
Phillips will also be featuring their External MORTORQ® Super lightweight bolt design which this year won the prestigious Fastener Technology Innovator 2015 competition presented by Fastener + Fixings Magazine at the Fastener Fair in Stuttgart. The new design was developed to meet the challenge of reducing weight in high strength assemblies while providing the optimum torque transmission for both assembly and dis-assembly. Phillips has worked closely with leading jet engine builders and automotive platform teams to develop the new design to help them reduce overall weight and improve efficiency.
