Tuning into the Telecoms Sector at 4G World, Las Vegas, 9-11 Sept 2014

With over 100 visitors a day to the stand resulting in over 180 potential sales leads, TR Fastenings’ attendance at 4G World in Las Vegas this month has been both memorable and highly successful. 

A leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial components to the telecommunications sector, TR Fastenings made the decision to exhibit at the 4G World Show, the largest unbiased mobile industry event,  as it was the ideal opportunity to showcase its extensive portfolio of industrial components to an international audience and it is delighted with the response that it has received.
“4G World had a fantastic buzz about it and it was certainly the place to be,” comments Glenda Roberts, Group Sales Director. “We were very impressed with both the show and the organisation and it has already generated opportunities and an amazing number of good contacts for us. The telecoms industry is at such an exciting place currently as 4G is rolled out across the world, and our components play a crucial role in the wireless infrastructure that is supporting it.”
Representatives from across TR’s global offices, including the UK, the US and Asia, were present at the stand to advise customers on suitable fastener solutions, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the event.
As Joe Haymes, Sales Manager TR Houston, explains:  “Many potential customers were found throughout the show. We approached those who were simply walking the show to the exhibitors who had their product on display for us to truly see the applications that could use our product and expertise.”
Mike Mowins, President - Global Licensing of Phillips Screw Company - joined TR on the stand to showcase the new MORTORQ® Super drive.
This innovative system provides the lowest head height possible enabling the thinnest assemblies. Furthermore, in micro fastening applications the MORTORQ® Super drive has provided unparalleled tool life and damage tolerance, resulting in fewer line stoppages for tool changes, greater productivity, and easy rebuild and recycling.

TR Fastenings to Exhibit at 4G World, Las Vegas, 9-11 Sept 2014 

TR Fastenings, a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial components to the telecommunications industry across four continents, is to attend 4G World in Las Vegas from 9-11 September 2014. 

A ‘Full Service Provider’, TR Fastenings will be showcasing its extensive portfolio of products for the telecommunications industry and advising on the best fastening solutions for 4G wireless infrastructure needs.
"We are delighted to welcome TR Fastenings to 4G World in Las Vegas," said 4G World Conference Chair Berge Ayvazian. "TR Fastenings, along with all our exhibitors, will bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the needs of 4G wireless infrastructure. We wish them a successful show."

Tuning Screws

Reflecting the diverse range of fasteners and fixings solutions offered by TR Fastenings, we pride ourselves for our success in manufacturing and supplying tuning screws to major global telecommunication companies and their sub-contact base. Tuning screws are used in microwave filters and power amplifiers and are part of base station and antenna systems predominately for the mobile telecommunications network. As networks expand and data rates increase these units play a very important role.
The tuning screws are generally brass with a silver plated finish and have a fine pitch thread plus a matching brass locking nut. Stainless steel is also used in certain applications. Sizes vary in both diameters, thread size, thread pitch and length depending on the application and space constraints. Different drive types such as Slot or TORX™ are most common and the “nose” design of the tuning screw is also a very important feature for ensuring precise tuning capability and stable signal/power performance. New developments for faster and easier tuning functionality have led to self-locking possibilities being implemented in certain applications.
Bespoke to the telecoms industry, TR’s tuning screws are designed for the removal or reduction of intermodulation distortion (the amplitude modulation of signals containing two or more different frequencies in a system with nonlinearities).

Mounting Kits for Masts

With arrival of 4G, new masts are being built and existing masts being adjusted and updated. TR Fastenings is able to provide kits for the supports which are used to attach antennas to masts, making it easier for them to be fitted and giving the support needed for them to be mounted in even the most extreme and windswept environment.
  • Made from high-quality stainless steel, the kits include nuts, bolts, screws and washers.


From power distribution units to indoor mainframe servers, TR Fastenings supplies a wealth of suitable fastening solutions for enclosures, including sheet metal and plastic components, as well as weather-proof seals.
  • Sheet metal self-clinch products, including cage nuts and rivet nuts. Screws with serrated heads are also available.
  • PCB inserts (brass soldered onto PCB board) to special bespoke design.
  • Plastics – cable harnessing, cable management.
  • Seals
