Engineering and technical back-up

There are many application challenges within the sheet metal industries. Selecting and installing the correct fasteners is one of them. Faced with increasing environmental responsibilities and unprecedented technological change, manufacturers and contractors are challenging for higher quality and smarter, application-based sheet metal fastening solutions.

Our research and technical capabilities encompass specific engineering disciplines evolved to support all sheet metal application solutions. TR offers fastener testing capabilities across a range of categories, including mechanical, dimensional, installation, and plating and finishes.

Application advice and guidance from our on-site engineers

TR’s depth of engineering knowledge and technical back-up is relied upon by our customers who are seeking assistance in the selection of products best suited to particular contracts or applications. Our global technical team can offer application advice and guidance and has the expertise to assist with solutions if there is an application issue that needs resolving.

In today’s competitive manufacturing environment, controlling cost and maintaining a high level of quality is a vital component of success. We offer complete confidence to our customers through our quality accreditation, which includes PPAP level 3. Here is what our existing customers say about our level of quality and expertise:
“In general it is great to work with all of the TR teams as they are always customer orientated and willing to help out. The knowledge, especially from TR’s Quality Department, is great because with this they can define and detect troubles and problems.
