Fastener manufacturers from the UK produce almost 100,000 tonnes of different products each year, for use throughout industry; from aerospace and advanced engineering, to the construction of homes, schools, and many other buildings.
The fastener sector may have contracted dramatically over the last 30 years, but remains a major contributor to our economy, and CBM members account for some 70% of production.
Many fastener companies use the latest CAD-CAM design software, coupled with sophisticated forging technology, to constantly drive up production standards, and reduce defects.
Adopting best practice is critical, so the CBM Fastener Sector is represented on the relevant BSI Standards committees, and a member of the European Industrial Fastener Institute.
